FTC goes after LabMD: The Federal Trade Commission is pursuing an action against LabMD for failing to protect patient data.  It's not structured as a HIPAA violation, but rather as a violation of the FTC obligations to protect computerized data.  It's not clear from the article if this is a "Red Flags Rule" violation or some other cybersecurity violation, but it sure looks like it could be a HIPAA breach as well.
