FTC Ratches Privacy Enforcement, With No Slowdown In Sight

July 24, 2014, Law360

Covington partner Kurt Wimmer is quoted in this article regarding the Federal Trade Commission pursuing companies such as Snapchat Inc. and Fandango LLC over allegedly misleading privacy promises and lax data security.

"To me, the FTC's work in the first half of 2014 has been more about security than privacy — both in advocating for its ability under Section 5 to regulate security in the Wyndham and LabMD cases, and in testifying to Congress in favor of data security legislation," said Kurt Wimmer, the co-chairman of Covington & Burling LLP's global privacy and data security practice group.
