ABSTRACT
The article warns corporate clients that the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and individuals are ready to go to court because of data security breaches. It examines the FTC's authority under the Federal Trade Commissions Act while the second part explains when these types of litigation are difficult to resolve as cited in particular cases. The Act empowers the FTC to prevent the use of unfair methods of competition by entities involved in commerce and penalizes practices involving data breaches due to lax data security.
