The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has formally asked publicly traded companies in the U.S. to disclose when they've been hacked or suffered a data breach. The request could drastically alter how corporations traditionally handle cybercrime attacks and the amount of staff and effort they use to prevent such incidents.
