Wyndham Worldwide, a hotel chain that suffered a series of data breaches in 2008 and 2009, has settled its dispute with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC).  Wyndham had been one of only two companies to resist settling FTC enforcement actions based on supposedly inadequate security.  But after the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit in August rejected its challenge to the FTC’s authority to police companies’ data security, Wyndham decided to throw in the towel and take its medicine.  That leaves LabMD as the lone David standing up to the data security Goliath.  And as we recently reported, David’s last missile squarely hit its target, as LabMD convinced an administrative law judge to dismiss the FTC’s complaint against it.  The FTC has appealed that order to the full Commission.
