On April 24, the Federal Trade Commission issued a press release highlighting the agency’s new stance of strengthening and improving its orders regarding privacy and data security that include going beyond previous requirements.
“We have instructed staff to closely review our orders to determine whether they could be strengthened and improved—particularly in the areas of privacy and data security,” according to the FTC press release regarding the i-Dressup.com and ClixSense matters. The agency added, “Future orders will better ensure that third-party assessors know they are accountable for providing meaningful, independent analysis of the data practices under examination.”
