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.
