- Data breach affected 200,000 people
- Client publishes one of the most widely-read daily newspapers in the country
- Legal action avoided following negotiations with FTC
The client, which publishes one of the most widely-read American newspapers, sought Mark Robinson’s counsel in connection with the loss of 200,000 subscribers’ personal information.
The first step was to assist in setting up call centers and preparing breach notices related to subscribers’ personal information. The next step was to negotiate a multistate and FTC resolution.
The negotiations with multiple state authorities and the FTC successfully avoided any state or federal regulatory and enforcement action against the client.
