FCC’s Cox Fine Shows Minor Hacks Can Have Major Fallout, Law360, ft. Christopher Nucifora

Posted Nov 13, 2015

Christopher Nucifora, managing partner of KDV’s New Jersey office, has been quoted in a Law360 article by Allison Grande published November 12, 2015. In the article, Christopher comments on the implications of the FCC’s action involving hitting Cox Communications with a fine over its alleged failure to secure data belonging to a relatively small number of customers, signaling that it won’t hesitate to police the data security practices of companies regardless of the scope or amount of harm caused by an intrusion.

“The FCC still does not provide a detailed ‘checklist’ describing the ‘every reasonable precaution’ standard,” said Christopher Nucifora, chairman of the technology practice group at Kaufman Dolowich & Voluck LLP “As such, for telecoms looking for more clarity, this settlement doesn’t provide it.”
