WASHINGTON -- The following statement was issued today by Rear Admiral (ret.) Jamie Barnett, Chief of the Federal Communications Commission’s Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau, in response to reports of the recent breach of AT&T's network that revealed personal data of more than 114,000 Apple iPad 3G consumers:

“I am concerned about the report of a security breach to AT&T's network that exposed the personal data of more than a hundred thousand iPad users. This breach underscores the need for robust cyber security. The FCC’s cyber security mission is to ensure that broadband networks are safe and secure for the consumers and businesses that depend on them. The FCC will continue to work with all stakeholders to prevent future security breaches that violate consumer privacy and undermine trust in America’s communications infrastructure.”
