Security FTC abandons policy with Google snooping case closure - Charges everyone except Schmidt The Federal Trade Commission let Google off the hook for its data breaches, and as every news outlet will tell you, they were pretty significant data breaches. Why? The FTC has come down like a ton of bricks and other cliches on companies that have done far less to threaten the consumer. Google's investigation is closed and it is getting away with nary a fine. Back in 2002, the FTC shouted at Microsoft for misrepresenting its Passport services and the information kept. Then, in 2006, it hit out at a company called ChoicePoint. The FTC said CardSystems failed to implement safeguards and failed to use readily available security measures for its applications online. 2008 saw the US District Court for the Middle District of Florida grant an injunction against a company called CyberSpy Software. Last year, CVS Caremark Corporation was charged for slacking on protection toward data it had farmed. In the same year, 2009, it charged Sears Holding Management Corporation on similar lines.
FCC to begin Google Street View investigation - "Mortified" Google under further fire Goole has found itself under the watchful eye of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). The US organisation has now said it will be investigating whether Google broke federal laws when its street-mapping service collected consumers' personal information. The investigation joins a long list of regulators and lawmakers, around the world, who are looking at what Google says was the inadvertent harvesting of private data sent over wireless networks. It comes despite a decision by the U.S. Google has said it was "mortified" to learn its WiFi-equipped Street View cars had mistakenly collected entire emails and passwords in some instances. However, some lawmakers are having none of it. "In light of their public disclosure, we can now confirm that the Enforcement Bureau is looking into whether these actions violate the Communications Act." Last month the UK let Google off with a slap on the wrist after dropping investigations into data harvesting.
