The U.S. Federal Trade Commission announced it has approved a final consent order in its settlement with SecurTest over claims it falsified its compliance status with the EU-U.S. and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield agreements. The FTC alleged SecurTest started a Privacy Shield application in September 2017; however, it did not complete the steps needed to be certified under either agreement. The background-screening company listed on its website that it participated in both frameworks. As part of the settlement, SecurTest can no longer misrepresent its participation in any government-sponsored or self-regulatory privacy framework.
