The FTC takes action against the alcohol delivery app Drizly and its CEO for not properly securing customers' data. The Iranian government points fingers at a foreign country after a recent breach. And Commerce appoints its first IoT committee. This is CyberScoop for Oct. 25.

Drizly slammed over data security

The FTC voted 4-0 to accept a consent agreement with alcohol delivery app Drizly to settle a complaint alleging that the company ignored known security problems, resulting in a 2020 breach of 2.5 million consumers’ personal data. The complaint also specifically names Drizly CEO Cory Rellas as a co-defendant, stating that he failed to delegate information security responsibilities or hire an executive to implement an information security program. As part of the FTC order, Drizly and Rellas are required to implement a security program requiring multi-factor authentication for access to databases with consumer information. Tonya Riley reports.

Blame game in Iran after hack-and-leak op

The hack-and-leak of emails and other materials this weekend related to Iran’s nuclear program was the result of “unauthorized access from a specific foreign country,” the Iranian government said Sunday, a claim the group denied in a message to CyberScoop. “We are Iranian and whatever the Islamic Republic says is a lie. We fight against the regime in support of women, life, and freedom," the group said in a message Monday. The hack-and-leak was, the group said, in response to the death of Mahsa Amini, a woman who died in police custody in Iran after being detained over the country's rules about women's appearance in public. The death sparked waves of protests and several hacktivist actions. AJ Vicens has more.

Commerce appoints experts to IoT board

The Department of Commerce has named 16 technology experts to its recently launched internet-of-things advisory board. Appointees to the group come from across industry and academia, as well as from federal, state and local organizations. The advisory group will provide evidence on matters including the identification of federal regulations and programs that could inhibit or promote the development of the internet of things, as well as situations in which the technology could deliver significant economic and societal benefits. John Hewitt Jones covers it in FedScoop.
