The Federal Communications Commission announced plans to fine two phone companies $10 million for allegedly breaching the privacy of up to 305,000 customers’ personal data.  According to the FCC, TerraCom and YourTel America violated the Communications Act of 1934 by not implementing “even the most basic and readily available technologies and security measures” for customers’ data and failing to notify them of a breach.  The FCC said in a press release, “This is the Commission's first data security case and the largest privacy action in the Commission's history.”  The FCC also recently announced its participation in the Global Privacy Enforcement Network, an international group of data protection authorities that cooperate on enforcing cross-border privacy laws, signaling that the agency intends to move further into the field of data security regulation in the future.  So communications companies now have another regulator to worry about when it comes to their data security practices.
