SUMMARY: Although consumers benefit from the added functionality that connected products provide, it is difficult for them to evaluate which connected products will keep their data secure. California residents need the protections that SB 327 would provide. This bill would help protect Californians’ privacy and security by requiring that connected devices be equipped with reasonable security protections to safeguard sensitive audio, video, geolocation, and general health information consumers share with the connected product. For these reasons, Consumers Union is proud to support this measure.
