Thursday: House Oversight Committee hearing on FTC

The Federal Trade commission and Its Section 5 Authority: Prosecutor, Judge, and Jury
Full Committee
July 24, 2014 | 9:30 a.m. in Rayburn 2154

Witnesses:

Mr. Michael Daugherty
Chief Executive Officer
LabMD, Inc.

Mr. David Roesler
Executive Director
Open Door Clinic of Greater Elgin

Mr. Gerard Stegmaier
Partner
Goodwin Procter

Mr. Woodrow Hartzog
Associate Professor
Samford University

The written statements are not available yet, but will be found here.

The first two witnesses are from HIPAA-covered entities that had breaches, so it appears that this is about the FTC’s Section 5 authority with focus on data security.

I’m not sure why the FTC had any involvement in the Open Door Clinic breach as the clinic is a not-for-profit, but I guess we’ll find out.
