Taylor & Jeter Author Article on Data Security Practices

InsideCounsel
June 2014

Charlotte Privacy & Data Security Senior Counsel Todd Taylor and Charlotte Litigation Counsel Breana Jeter were published by InsideCounsel on June 2.  Their article, “3 data security best practices learned from FTC enforcement actions,” was the second column in a three piece series on data security.  It discusses three major practices that were cited in recent data security enforcement actions, along with best practices that companies should consider implementing.

"One of the biggest takeaways from Judge Esther Salas’ recent opinion in FTC v. Wyndham Worldwide Corp., et al was that in the absence of formal Federal Trade Commission (FTC) rules on data security practices, companies should consider the settlements and advisory opinions from prior FTC enforcement actions for guidance.  Accordingly, we have compiled a list of three major practices cited in recent data security enforcement actions, along with the best practices that companies should consider implementing."
