Open Door Clinic of Greater Elgin
Mr. Gerard Stegmaier
Mr. Woodrow Hartzog
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.
