MGM Resorts sues FTC over cyber attack investigation

The US Federal Trade Commission (FTC) is being sued by MGM Resorts in an audacious move to stop the FTC’s investigation into a recent cyberattack on its systems.

During the course of the previous year’s attack, almost ten million guests who had stayed at MGM Resorts facilities had their personal information exposed. There were worries about possible identity theft and fraud among people harmed because the stolen data contained names, addresses, phone numbers, and email addresses.

The FTC opened an investigation in the wake of the incident to find out if MGM Resorts had taken adequate measures to safeguard the privacy of its clientele. Nonetheless, MGM Resorts has challenged the extent of the FTC’s investigation, claiming that it surpasses the agency’s jurisdiction and violates its commercial rights.

According to MGM Resorts, they have taken substantial measures to solve the security issue and protect the information of its guests. They also take the privacy and security of their guests’ information very seriously. They think the FTC’s inquiry is pointless and unjustified, and they are sure they have taken the appropriate action to make things right.

However, the FTC has stated that it will keep looking into the matter until it is satisfied that MGM Resorts has taken the necessary steps to protect customer information. The main objective of the agency is to guarantee that businesses adopt the appropriate safety measures to preserve the personal data they gather and to protect customers from potential data breaches.

Although the result of this legal dispute is unknown, it emphasizes how crucial cybersecurity is to the gambling sector. The consequences of the cyberattack have been felt strongly by MGM Resorts and the industry as a whole, highlighting the necessity of companies to give the security of their clients’ data first priority.
