U.S. notifications and the Lastpass breach

Today, I read a bit of an outdated article but spotted last night. The article is titled LastPass breach exposes how US breach notification laws can leave consumers in the lurch and it comes from Cyberscoop.

I’m going to give my thoughts on this on an upcoming tech podcast which I started recording today.

If Lastpass doesn’t have to notify us of what really happened, than why be transparent?

The whole point of being transparent is to tell people whether they’re customers or not what happened should something go wrong.

The problem is, there are 50 different rules on when to tell consumers, one by each state. There is nothing uniform anyhow. I believe Lastpass is on the east coast, and if that’s the case, they have to follow each state’s rules on notifying us about the breach.

I do agree with one twitter follower who discussed this with me, the company has not been straight forward. The Cyberscoop article also states that they’ve not answered any questions the publication has put forth to them.

This can’t work with millions of customers. You have to tell us as soon as you know. I understand that the investigation may be an ongoing investigation. When we had problems, as soon as I knew about it and resolved it, I put out a blog post and a notice to my customers. Its the right thing to do. I’m a small fry. Lastpass is large, I’m small. Why can I do something like that but Lastpass can’t? All I got was that there was a breach, read the blog. I already read that blog post months prior.

I blogged then that if I have new updates on something, I post a new blog. I’m not going to remember to read the same blog, once read, RSS removes it.

Lastpass must do better! Thoughts? There is no wrong answer, and Lastpass isn’t the only company that is vague in this matter. Thanks for reading.
