The CSO article, “FTC begins sweeping commercial surveillance and lax data security rulemaking process,” discussed the persistence of data breaches exposing consumers’ sensitive information even as organizations are selling troves of consumers’ personal, financial, and location data to a thriving data broker industry. The agency, is seeking to establish new rules governing commercial surveillance and data security.
McGinn noted that she is not surprised that the FTC is expanding its reach in these areas. “The areas of concern that the FTC is asking for public comment are areas that the FTC has expressed concern over, issued guidance about, and held workshops about in investigations and enforcement actions.”
