A letter released by the Federal Trade Commission announced the closure of its investigation into whether Morgan Stanley Smith Barney LLC engaged in unfair or deceptive data security practices by failing to secure account information related to Morgan Stanley’s Wealth Management clients.  The FTC ended the investigation but asserted that the decision “should not be construed as a determination that a violation did not occur.”  It seems that even when a company beats the rap, the Commission is loathe to acknowledge it.
