An Overview of P2P Data Breaches

November 2012Webinars/Podcasts

Data breaches are on the rise for companies both small and large – and authorities in Washington, DC, such as the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), are taking action. One type of breach that has become particularly bothersome to the FTC involves peer-to-peer, or P2P, networks.

Join John R. Gotaskie as he discusses this growing concern in his latest podcast. Using the recent example of Franklin Toyota, a Georgia car dealership that was hit with a breach, as his backdrop, John discusses how companies can steer clear of running afoul of the law and comply with federal regulations.
