ABSTRACT
The article ponders on a decision made by the U.S. Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) in April 2010 to fine broker-dealer D. A. Davidson for its alleged failure to protect customer information. Such customer information included names, Social Security numbers, and customer account numbers. The company's failure to encrypt its database allowed computer hackers to generate records of 192,000 customers.
