In a post for his office's Business Blog, U.S. Federal Trade Commission Bureau of Consumer Protection Director Andrew Smith explained strides the FTC made in 2019 regarding its data security orders. Smith cited seven orders that showed the FTC's mandates were more specific, increased third-party assessor accountability and placed more data security considerations on company executives. "When [FTC Chairman Joe Simons] and I arrived at the FTC, one of our first priorities was to strengthen the FTC’s orders in data security cases," Smith wrote. "We’ve already made three major changes that improve data security practices and provide greater deterrence, within the bounds of our existing authority."
