The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has set the standard for what it considers acceptable, and unacceptable behavior for companies and organizations conducting business within the United States. The FTC doesnít involve itself in the minutae of security standards Ďala HIPAA, PCI, etc, nor does it dictate what protocols or technologies companies need to use. Rather, the FTC uses itís Constitutional and Congressional mandate for regulating Interstate Commerce to hold companies accountable for their breaches. This presentation will examine the FTCís track record, put the sanctions in a larger context of privacy and security breaches, and most importantly, we will look at where the FTC is trending with the FTC Health Breach and RED FLAG regulations.
