The FTC, for example, will be acting to ensure that any given organization is not negligent or reckless with private information, but upon what information do they act?
In a number of cases, the FTC, has acted in good faith on information provided by third parties but whose agenda, as it transpires, was not so clear and perhaps, not so honorable.
In this session we'll focus on exactly one such fight, where the FTC relied on highly suspect information, obtained by, for all intents and purposes, a "faux" breach of a cancer-screening service, resulting in a protracted legal fight and ultimately, the collapse of the organization, overwhelmed by litigation, fines and penalties. Michael Daugherty, Founder, President and CEO of LabMD and the author of the book "The Devil Inside the Beltway", will share his story of what to expect when the federal government investigates you. He'll then join in a discussion with Joseph Burton, Partner, Duane Morris LLC and with Mathew Schwartz, Executive Editor, ISMG, on the many issues raised by this fascinating story.
