Data brokers are still in Rockefeller’s crosshairs

22 sec read

If you’re going to make someone on Capitol Hill angry, it shouldn’t be West Virginia Democrat Senator John D. Rockefeller IV. He doesn’t slow down. He doesn’t give up. He doesn’t give in.

A Congressional probe into the multibillion-dollar data brokerage industry – companies that collect, analyze, sell or share personal details about consumers for marketing purposes – is intensifying.

On Wednesday afternoon, Senator John D. Rockefeller IV, a West Virginia Democrat, sent a letter to Donald Robert, the chief executive of Experian, asking for information about a company subsidiary, called Court Ventures, that sold sensitive consumer data, allegedly to an identity theft service in Vietnam.
