MGM Resorts seeks to block FTC request for cyberattack data

Home » MGM Resorts seeks to block FTC request for cyberattack data

MGM Resorts International is seeking to quash a Federal Trade Commission request for information on last fall’s cyberattack, saying the request is overreaching and contrary to the company’s efforts to assist federal law enforcement investigators.

The Las Vegas-based casino company — the state’s largest employer — filed the petition to quash or limit the FTC’s “civil investigative demand” on Feb. 20. The FTC seeks hundreds of pages of data that MGM says is irrelevant to the case and that it fears could be detrimental to the FBI’s investigation into who was responsible for the attack that crippled MGM’s computer systems for nine days beginning Sept. 10.
