Former US Secret Service asst. director: Keep personal info of FTX users private


Jeremy Sheridan, former assistant director of the United States Secret Service Office of Investigations, has warned that certain FTX customers could become targets if their personal information were to be made public.

In an April 20 declaration filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware, Sheridan supported a motion from the debtors that would withhold “certain confidential information” of FTX users. According to Sheridan, who is currently a managing director for FTI Consulting (NYSE:FCN), releasing the names of customers associated with the failed crypto exchange imposes “a severe and unusual risk of identity theft, asset theft, personal attack, and further online victimization.”
