“A Post-Wyndham World: Exploring the Regulatory Risks of Failed Security Programs”

Abstract: In 2015, the Third Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed the Federal Trade Commission’s power to regulate cybersecurity issues using Section 5 of the FTC Act. The failure to implement “reasonable security measures” is now an unfair business practice under federal law. But the government gives no clear guidance and has not defined “reasonable” in this context. So what should businesses do? This presentation focuses on the lessons from the FTC’s data security decisions and what businesses can and should do to stay off the Commission’s radar.
