The Era of False Secure IT Advertising and Consumers at Large
March 7, 2016
“The Era of False Secure IT Advertising and The Consumers At Large” – by jim white, Cybrary librarian student.)One of my favorite passions is the study of law in a hobby sort of way. Maybe because I am a certified veterans paraprofessional, a kind of paralegal for Veterans laws, tasked to protect the veterans, widows and orphans. They have a Court in DC one can appeal to, and if not satisfied, your case could go all the way to the US Supreme Court for a decision.I'm not a lawyer, so a few courts allow non-lawyers in a administrative court level prepare and present cases. Do I see this as a potential field of study, a certified Cybrary IT advocate merits of law in ethics?Points on law regarding ethical, privacy whereas past academics dealt with forensics, motives, opportunities or as I like to say: "the smoking gun prime number marries the smoking cyber-byte matrix, and ethics is the motive and message as a speedloader of import and export commodities. The laws are the fastest commodity share in global trade."I think honor programs are a possibility, based on the recent pace of our little known US Court of Administration decisions. The global message and outreach today is global in trade, that being "law" and opinions could very well be a case in import and export courts as a commodity perceived. It's starting to develop courtships around press writers outside the trade-based societies.While the nation today is buzzing over the US Supreme Court nomination debates, and IT security professionals in major corporate settings wished their "Corporate Boards" were more IT aware and concerned as the courts. I spend most of my hobby time in the courts of administration law, where I think the pen has been right, on the Corporate boards not in the loop of dialogs.Ethical Courts We May not Know of: Shaping Universal OpinionsAt the federal level this week a little unknown to most is a Court, as it published its findings and investigations and issued it’s “Consent Order.” "Whats a Consent Order ?" Just that title alone put my pause button on, as I had not heard of a “consent order” before and my curiosity button when into action press.A little unknown US Court Published on 3/02/2016 as file number 2016-CFPB-0007, In the Matter of Dwolla, Inc, a Delaware company doing business in Iowa, regarding law violations, deceptive acts and practices in violations of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau laws of the land.Sadly, this company in Iowa did not know of the talent and business services offered my our Cybrary students and staff. Had they hired a true encryption, secure, trained administrator they would have not been held to account.What's troubling to me was the false sense of security through their advertising, assuring customers their IT transfer systems were above reproach. The court proved that was not tried and true. Simply, they misled consumers, the you and me and our social linked friends, into thinking all was kosher. Deceptive Data-Security Representations are punishable under lawsThe US Courts we don’t read about daily are truly groundbreaking authorities. And, I think this is a first of a kind finding regarding this consent order. It's potentially an eye-opener for me and Cybrary to consider, at the knowledge marketing merit business end.Students from our school may see this as a opening door to assist in career development goals. My thinking is, Cybrary Management might bring a conversation to the educating the small cap markets by way of the FTC and Federal Consumer Financial Protection Bureau as well as in the money transfer business as this company did under federally insured depository banks and credit unions which this case read is all engaging; with some 653,000 customer members and transferred around $5,000,000 per day!The gave a false sense of security to these customers and failed to hire a truly passionate security IT passion level administrator.When I read of Consumer Financial Protection Act of 2010 (12 U.S.C. sections 5563, 5565, they have jurisdiction to protect us from companies who use false security, false advertising, and false hiring promotions to increase their profits, putting our money and risks in harm’s way.A Supreme Court has great higher Court opinion OP/Ed return and Big Companies, Chairs, Boards and Voting members are lacking the linguistics to have meaningful planning talks with IT security professionals. Yet, onward to these low little unknown Courts of the Ethical Land to me are the real warriors in the street fight we each see daily.So a Cybrary Student(( Shout Out)) to the Federal Trade Commissioners, and the Courts of Consumer Protections, whoever and wherever you may be located.Salutes for speaking the ethical linguistics Cybrary Taught way. -jim white, law libraries and Cybrary student, USA.Tags and citations: https://www.ftc.gov/ (commission actions) and https://www.cfpb.gov/enforcement
