20 Jun BEHIND THE MASK: THE AGENDA, TRICKS, AND TACTICS OF THE FEDERAL TRADE COMMISSION AS THEY REGULATE CYBERSECURITY
Will be presenting to BlackHat USA 2015 Aug 1-6, 2015, Mandalay Bay, Las Vegas, NV
While the FTC, FCC and Homeland Security joust over who is going to regulate the internet, Michael J. Daugherty will rivet you about his blood in the water battle with the Federal Trade Commission over their relentless investigation into LabMD’s data security practices showing you what they do to those who dare not “go along to get along.”
This is an insider’s look at how agencies exploit their power by bullying the small and weak to control the private sector. You will hear about Mike’s shrewd investigation of the investigator (FTC) which resulted in a House Oversight investigation, a stinging Congressional report about the FTC’s behavior, and criminal immunity from the Justice Department for a whistleblower. The administrative case against LabMD, stayed in June 2014 when the whistleblower pled the 5th, started again May 5, 2015, after criminal immunity had been granted. Mike exposes the real time maneuvers of government lawyers and regulators who are accustomed to no one looking.
Because of his work, Mike has testified before the House of Representatives House Oversight Committee and regularly keynotes in front of healthcare, law, business and technology audience educating them on what to expect when the Federal Government investigates you.
