The President of the United States persuaded Congress to pass a legislation that will require retailers to inform customers within 30 days of a breach incident.  Mr. Obama said that cyber attacks are a, “direct threat to the economic security” of Americans.

“In a speech previewing his annual State of the Union speech, Mr Obama urged Congress to pass a nationwide law to require firm to inform customers within 30 days if their data has been hacked and make it a crime to sell customers’ identities overseas.”
