Federal Trade Commission's Start With Security Guide


Published on

Sound security is no accident. Here's what the FTC learned from more than 50 law enforcement actions related to data security, distilled down into their wonderful guide

The Federal Trade Commission’s (FTC) job is to protect consumers. The agency’s Bureau of Consumer Protection works to investigate issues related to many areas, including data security. When they discover unfair, deceptive, or fraudulent business practices, they work with law enforcement to follow-up.

To help businesses better protect their customers’ sensitive data, they published Start With Security: A Guide for Business to surface their lessons learned from settling more than 50 law enforcement actions. The FTC found that most of the cases involved “basic, fundamental security missteps.”
What follows are suggestions from the FTC so, hopefully, you can avoid those same basic, fundamental missteps. We’ve also included the FTC’s real examples of infractions and some helpful resources.
