WASHINGTON, DC (AP) - Illinois' attorney general is planning to testify in Washington on data breaches.
Lisa Madigan's office notes the Chicago Democrat is scheduled to testify on Capitol Hill on Wednesday morning before a House committee.
The attorney general plans to speak about a growing number of data breaches that she says have affected consumers nationwide and prompted multiple investigations in her offices about how businesses are protecting consumers. A data breach is the sharing of information that is supposed to be secure and confidential.
Madigan says she plans to detail the role Illinois and other states have in responding to data breaches and the steps the private sector and government can take to prevent them.
