The FTC and Twitter reach a settlement over data collection. The FBI seeks cyber and data-related funding from Congress. And the U.S. races against China on artificial intelligence. This is CyberScoop for May 26.

Twitter pays up

Twitter on Wednesday reached a $150 million settlement with the FTC to settle allegations that the company used data collected for account-security purposes for advertising without customer awareness. The practice violates federal law and the terms of a 2011 settlement with the FTC over Twitter’s failure to safeguard user data, which led to two breaches. “Keeping data secure and respecting privacy is something we take extremely seriously, and we have cooperated with the FTC every step of the way,” Twitter’s chief privacy officer Damien Kieran wrote in a blog Wednesday.

The FBI is seeking more than $100 million in additional FY2023 funding for cyber and data-related investments, FBI Director Christopher Wray said in a statement submitted to a congressional committee Wednesday. The figure is minor relative to the overall budget ask — $10.8 billion — but is significant nonetheless. The agency wants $52 million to add 137 cyber-related positions, and $36.9 million for nine new positions and investments to secure internal networks. The budget request also includes $17 million for ongoing investments in data processing and sharing upgrades. AJ Vicens explains.

Pentagon needs to improve to keep up with China on AI, commander warns

China will win the race to supremacy on artificial intelligence if the Pentagon doesn't do more to streamline and optimize its work with data, the commander running the Department of Defense's Joint Artificial Intelligence Center warned Wednesday. Lt. Gen. Michael Groen told an Atlantic Council audience that artificial intelligence prowess will soon become the central determinant of battlefield success. China is gunning to win the sprint to dominate the AI landscape by 2030. Groen said the U.S. and China are now neck-and-neck, but the Pentagon must overcome "cultural obstacles to actually become a competitive enterprise that can outfight any opponent."
