Westchester County (NY) Proposes Law to Enforce Wi-Fi Security

Michael Myser writes in eWeek:

A public official in Westchester County, some 30 miles north of New York, has proposed legislation that would require businesses that collect customer information to apply basic security like firewalls when also offering wireless access to consumers.

The proposed law, which the county said is the first of its kind in the United States, aims to ensure that local businesses have corporate security enabled and to cut down on identity theft in the area.
