FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., Jan. 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- D-Link Systems, Inc. today announced it has retained Cause of Action Institute to represent the company 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.
"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."
D-Link chose to retain Cause of Action Institute due to its successful track record fighting government abuse. Cause of Action Institute relentlessly defended LabMD, a small cancer diagnostics company, against a similar unwarranted FTC overreach into data security oversight.
"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. "If the FTC can bring a lawsuit on the potential of a data security breach, nearly every company will be subject to unexplored data security liability and the FTC's unrelentingly litigious oversight. 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," Massari continued.
