Court Dismisses FTC’s Unfairness Claims Regarding Potential Data Breaches

October 3, 2017 by George A. Gasper, Partner
Several months ago, as part of the Federal Trade Commission’s continuing regulation of the Internet of Things (“IoT”) security practices, the FTC filed a complaint against D-Link Corporation (and DLS, its U.S. subsidiary), alleging that they failed to take reasonable steps to secure their routers and Internet Protocol cameras, which potentially compromised sensitive consumer information, including live video and audio feeds. The case was notable because the agency did not allege that particular breaches actually occurred, but rather that “the company failed to take steps to address well-known and easily preventable security flaws” and put “thousands of consumers at risk,” despite allegedly marketing its products as secure and supporting “the latest wireless security features.”


New Self-Driving Vehicle Legislation Cruises Onto Senate Floor

Like the Internet of Things Cybersecurity Improvements Act of 2017, which was introduced in the Senate in August, this latest legislative foray into the Internet of Things (“IoT”) is a bipartisan effort to get ahead of emerging technologies.
