Sen. Ben Cardin: Feds need lifetime identity theft protection

The Office of Personnel Management has already announced plans to provide up to three years of identity theft protection for the more than 21 million people involved in its massive data breach. But several U.S. senators are saying that's not good enough. The Senate delegations from Maryland and Virginia are jointly sponsoring legislation that pay for protection services for breach victims for the rest of their lives — and grant them $5 million insurance policies against identity theft. Sen. Ben Cardin (D-Md.) is one of the sponsors. He tells In Depth guest host Jared Serbu that the services OPM's offering aren't enough.
