AMP Global Clearing, LLC
Company: AMP Global Clearing LLC
Date: February 12, 2018
The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) issued an Order filing and simultaneously settling charges against AMP Global Clearing LLC (AMP), a registered Futures Commission Merchant since 2010, for its failure between June 21, 2016 and April 17, 2017 to supervise diligently the implementation of critical provisions in AMP’s information systems security program (ISSP). As a result of this failure, a significant amount of AMP’s customers’ records and information were left unprotected for nearly ten months.
In April 2017, as a result of this failure, a third party unaffiliated with AMP (Third Party) accessed AMP’s information technology network and copied approximately 97,000 files, which included customers’ records and information, including personally identifiable information. The Third Party thereafter contacted federal authorities about securing the copied information, and subsequently informed AMP that the copied information had been secured and was no longer in the Third Party’s possession.
After becoming aware of the vulnerability and unauthorized access, AMP cooperated with the CFTC and worked diligently to remediate the issue.
