California Starts Up a Privacy Enforcement Unit | Threat Level | Wired.com.

Yet another sign that the privacy issues are starting to come in from the cold: The California Attorney General’s office is setting up a special unit for the purpose of enforcing state and federal privacy laws.

This has the potential to have a major impact on not just Silicon Valley, but also (if Massachusetts and Nevada are any indicator) any company doing business in the state of California.

As a result of moves such as this, it is increasingly important that companies make sure that their policies, procedures, and practices on customer privacy are fully up to date. More and more, this is a truly business-critical issue.
