"Safeguards are needed for how FTC looks at allegations" of unfair business practices involving data security, Issa says. "Cybersecurity is not a hard science, you can be sure."
"In two separate incidents, LabMD collectively exposed the personal information of approximately 10,000 consumers," according to the FTC. "The complaint alleges that LabMD billing information for over 9,000 consumers was found on a peer-to-peer (P2P) file-sharing network and then, in 2012, LabMD documents containing sensitive personal information of at least 500 consumers were found in the hands of identity thieves."
"If the assertion that he made are true, the FTC has been misled and this committee has been misled on multiple occasions" Issa said
Watkins, Issa's spokeswoman, says, "The committee will continue to investigate troubling accusations about unfair FTC practices."
