On December 1, 2010, the Federal Trade Commission (“FTC” or “Commission”) released a preliminary staff report (the “Report”) setting forth a framework for how commercial entities should protect consumer information.

The Report is also intended to guide and motivate the industry as it develops best practices and self-regulatory guidelines. Notably, the FTC observed that industry efforts to develop meaningful protections for consumer information have fallen short in recent years, which suggests that legislation in this area is likely warranted.
