FTC told to disclose the data security standards it uses for breach enforcement

Administrative judge rules in favor of LabMD in long-standing dispute

By , Computerworld |  Data Protection, data breach

"It means we will have an opportunity to speak on the record with the witness from the FTC about the standards they believe were in place" at the time LabMD information was allegedly leaked.

"They have been extremely reticent about disclosing what they believe LabMD did wrong at any particular moment in time. This is an opportunity to obtain a little more specificity" about the FTC's complaint, Reed said.

The FTC did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
