FTC Busts Dave & Buster's
DATA LOSS—U.S.March 29, 2010
The entertainment operation Dave & Buster's, Inc., has agreed to settle Federal Trade Commission charges that the company failed to protect consumers' information, according to an FTC press release. The commission alleged that the company failed to detect and prevent unauthorized network access and failed to "use readily available security measures to limit access to its computer networks through wireless access points," among other failures, which enabled hackers to access 130,000 credit and debit cards. To settle the charges, the company will establish a program to protect customers' data and subject itself to biennial audits for the next decade.
