Comment HIPAA for consumer data? (Score 2, Interesting) 176

Last week I had to sit through a HIPAA class ( ability_and_Accountability_Act ) Granted, I was bored to tears, but I couldn't help but think that we need these same guidelines were applied to consumer data, including credit and financial info.

HIPAA is a set of rules, with some teeth, that governs how patient medical information must be handled. The banks, credit agencies, etc would squeal like pigs if such legislation were proposed, but I think that's what we really need.
