    No official national authority.
    However, the FTC has jurisdiction over most commercial entities
    and has authority to issue and enforce privacy regulations in specific areas
    (eg for telemarketing, commercial email, and children's privacy).
    The FTC uses its general authority to prevent unfair and deceptive
    trade practices to bring enforcement actions against inadequate data security measures,
    and inadequately disclosed information collection, use and disclosure practices.
    State attorneys general typically have similar authority and bring some enforcement
    actions, particularly in the case of high profile data security breaches.
    In addition, a wide range of sector regulators, particularly those in the health care,
    financial services, communications, and insurance sectors, have authority
    to issue and enforce privacy regulations.
