How Many Times Do We Have to Tell You Not to Open the Cat Video

April 11, 2016

They reach out to turn the knob and in unison the audience is thinking “Fool, haven’t you ever been to the movies? Don’t you know that the zombies or ghouls or some other equally disgusting creature are waiting for you behind that door. Don’t do it!” They of course open the door, blissfully unaware of the grisly fate waiting for them.

I get the same sort of feeling when I read about cybersecurity lapses at banks. Think about the following:

  • “Someone dropped a thumb drive, I think I’ll just plug it into my computer at work and see what is on it. Surely nothing bad will happen. If nothing else, I’ll give it to one of my kids, they can use it on the home

Risk of Loss Allocation for Fraudulent Wires in the Business Setting

What do video game, music, and free online telephone networks have in common?  If your employees use them they can lead to a FTC data security investigation.

Although the days of Napster and Gnutella may be over, the technology upon which those applications were based — peer-to-peer networks or “P2P” — is alive and well in modern-day programs that share video games and music.  As two recent Federal Trade Commission enforcement actions illustrate, companies that permit employees to use P2P applications — either knowingly or unknowingly — may face government investigations and possible liability.  To learn more, please click here to read the Bulletin published by the Data Privacy & Security Team on June 19, 2012.
