Wi-Fi Guidance Becomes Law In California

California lawmakers endorsed a bill that will require manufacturers of wireless internet equipment to provide guidance on data security for wireless connections. The legislation, which still needs Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger’s signature, is expected to take effect on October 1, 2007. Under the law, companies must ensure WiFi-capable products have warning labels — box stickers, special notification in setup software, notification during the router setup, or automatic securing of the connection — that must be placed in a way that would require the consumer to remove them before the equipment can be used. The guidance should provide information on how to secure data, folders and connection.
