When Kid’s Toys Are Listening, the FTC is Watching

In an article published by IPWatchdog, Mitzi Hill and Michael Bahar discussed the VTech and FTC case regarding a data breach concerning data for over 6 million children. They discussed updates to the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), smart devices vulnerability, what manufacturers can expect, and ways for businesses to remain compliant with the FTC.

VTech became a victim of cyber attackers back in 2015, when hackers got access to the company’s online database and compromised accounts of over 11 million, which included data for about 6.37 million children.
