The long-awaited federal district court opinion in FTC v. Wyndham was finally released last week. The U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey rejected Wyndham’s arguments that the FTC lacks the authority to regulate unfair data security practices, that the FTC is required to issues rules before bringing an unfair data security complaint, and that the FTC failed to provide fair notice of what constitutes an unfair data security practice.
I blogged about the case here last week.
