Does your business meet the FTC’s Cybersecurity Standards?

Published On: September 25, 2015

Cybersecurity…it’s all the buzz in the business world for good reason. Strong cybersecurity is a priority for businesses, their boards, and for consumers. The landscape in this arena has changed and continues to change at such a rapid pace that someone in your company needs to be focused on this area to ensure that your business is staying current and meeting the Federal Trade Commission’s cybersecurity standards. As the 2012 FTC lawsuit against against Wyndham Worldwide showed, the FTC can (and will) hold companies accountable for failing to meet these security standards.

While there is some debate about whether or not FTC standards are clear enough for companies to be able to know exactly what rules to follow, two things are certain:

  1. You want to protect your customers and your company from a massive data breach, like that seen at other major US retailers. This step includes developing, implementing and reassessing your short and long term security goals within the company.
  2. You want to keep your company off of the FTC’s radar and leave no question that you are following appropriate protocol for cybersecurity standards. You do NOT want to land in court battling over whether your standards were high enough.
