FTC Releases Cyber Security Guide
Announces Road Show on Security for Start-Ups
I have often said one of the best guides for cyber security practices is past FTC consent decrees. The FTC has now package a guidebook for business – Start with Security: A Guide for Business – that summarizes lessons learned from the more than 50 data security settlements. The guidebook synthesizes the lessons into 10 common-sense lessons that apply to businesses of all sizes and in all sectors.
The FTC also announced it would hold workshops in San Francisco and Austin to promote Security for Start-Ups. Details are below.
