On October 13, 2010, the FTC filed comments with the FCC in response to its Notice of Inquiry (NOI), released April 21, 2010, regarding whether the FCC should establish a voluntary program for cyber security certifications. The FTC made three recommendations: (1) the program’s objectives and practices should allow for flexibility; (2) the program should adjust to new technologies and evolving security threats; and (3) the program should include a strong enforcement mechanism. In the past, the FTC has brought complaints against companies that have failed to provide reasonable and appropriate security measures to counteract basic security threats. The FCC’s NOI can be found here. The FTC’s comments can be found here.
