The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has filed documents in U.S. District Court alleging identity-theft protection service LifeLock violated its 2010 settlement with the agency. The FTC alleges LifeLock made deceptive claims about its services, failed to implement a comprehensive information-security program to protect sensitive consumer data, falsely advertised that it protected customer data at a high level and did not meet the 2010 order’s bookkeeping requirements, an FTC press release states. “It is essential that companies live up to their obligations under orders obtained by the FTC,” said Consumer Protection Bureau Director Jessica Rich. “If a company continues with practices that violate orders and harm consumers, we will act.” The FTC voted 4-1 on the order, with Commissioner Maureen Ohlhausen in opposition.
