While the FTC, FCC and Homeland Security joust over who is going to regulate the internet, Michael J. Daugherty is here to rivet you about his blood in the water battle with the Federal Trade Commission over their relentless investigation into LabMD’s data security practices so they can “do what they do” to those who refuse to “go along to get along”. They say it’s about privacy but it’s about power. Their power. DC Beltway Bureaucratic Power.
This is an insider’s look at how the FTC is trying to “back door” their way into regulating healthcare by going after small entities to regulate all. It’s their playbook.
We are going to talk about Mike’s shrewd investigation of the investigator (FTC), which, after publication, resulted in a House Oversight investigation, a stinging Congressional report about the FTC’s behavior, and criminal immunity from the Justice Department for a whistleblower. The administrative case against LabMD, stayed in June 2014 when the whistleblower pled the 5th, started again May 5, 2015, after criminal immunity had been granted. Chairman Issa released a bombshell report May 12, 2015 which can be downloaded at TheDevilInsideTheBeltway.com.
Mike exposes real time maneuvers of government lawyers and regulators who are accustomed to no one looking.
Because of his work, Mike has testified before the House of Representatives House Oversight Committee and regularly keynotes in front of healthcare, law, business and technology audience educating them on what to expect when the Federal Government investigates you.
