Craig Carpenter Quoted in Bloomberg BNA on Data Security

“Wyndham Case May Mean Uncertainty for New Payment Providers”

In the ever-changing cybersecurity world, it will be difficult to lay out specific requirements, Craig Carpenter, a member of Thompson & Knight LLP’s data privacy and cybersecurity team, told Bloomberg BNA.

“It would be difficult to develop and implement a ‘standard’ for data security that has any more specificity than the Court’s analysis in this opinion,” he said. “The opinion shows that the Court is comfortable” with using the definition of an unfair practice “as an appropriate measuring stick for security standards.”
