QOTD - Knock knock, it's the FTC

Jon Leibowitz, FTC Chairman, warned companies that they must "protect their back doors from hackers, malware, spyware and other high-tech intrusion mechanisms and protect their front door by properly storing and disposing of consumers' data." He indicated that FTC will not be shy about knocking on a company's door to evaluate their practices.

Speaking at the "Securing Personal Data in the Global Economy" conference on March 16, 2009, he also said: "Without adequate data security there really is no privacy."
