TMCNet:  Cause of Action Institute to Defend D-Link Systems Against FTC's Baseless Data Security Charges

Cause of Action Institute to Defend D-Link Systems Against FTC's Baseless Data Security Charges

WASHINGTON, Jan. 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Cause of Action Institute ("CoA Institute") today announced it will represent D-Link Systems, Inc. ("D-Link Systems") in its defense against recent unwarranted and baseless charges brought by the Federal Trade Commission ("FTC") regarding the company's security practices for consumer routers and IP cameras.

"It sets a dangerous precedent for the federal government to go after a good company and put American jobs at risk without a single instance of actual or likely consumer harm," said Cause of Action Institute Assistant Vice President Patrick Massari. "This lawsuit is another instance of the FTC's unchecked regulatory overreach. If the FTC can bring a lawsuit on the mere potential of a data security breach, nearly every company will be subject to unconstrained and unexplored data security liability. Such limitless liability coupled with FTC's history of unrelentingly litigious oversight will no doubt have a chilling effect on innovatin in the Internet of Things. Privacy advocates and consumers at large should applaud our client's courage for fighting these incendiary claims and refusing to be held hostage by the FTC for the next 20 years."

D-Link Systems has retained CoA Institute due to its successful track record fighting government abuse. CoA Institute relentlessly defended LabMD, a small cancer diagnostics company, against a similar unwarranted FTC overreach into data security oversight.

"We are pleased Cause of Action Institute will be joining our fight against these false allegations," said William Brown, chief information security officer, D-Link Systems, Inc. "We are committed to protecting customer security, which the complaint affirmed by citing no actual data breach. Global connectivity relies on an unfettered commitment to security; we will continue to maintain and enhance the integrity of all D-Link Systems products."
