The Law Requires You to Protect Confidential Information!

Like most industries that work with private and confidential information, yours is heavily regulated and governed. And laws designed to protect identities, financial data, and personal privacy come with strict rules and strong fines. We can help you stay compliant.

In addition to industry regulations governing information privacy, here are a few of the key information security laws that also apply.

Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act (FACTA)

Ensures accuracy and privacy of consumers’ financial information and requires effective policies in the workplace to secure destruction of consumer information to prevent identity thefts and unauthorized access to the information.

Sarbanes-Oxley Act

Is an act set up for publicly traded companies to protect investors by improving the accuracy and reliability of corporate financial disclosures. The act also requires secure document retention and destruction – to better protect against corporate and accounting fraud.

Gramm-Leach Bliley Act

Protects the privacy of consumer information held by any business that provides financial products or services. It also ensures privacy protections against the sale of any private financial information. Violators can be fined up to $1,000,000.

Red Flag Rules

Requires dealerships and financial institutions to create a written identity theft prevention program to detect, prevent, and mitigate identity theft. The Federal Trade Commission aims for a program that can help businesses spot suspicious patterns and prevent the costly consequences of identity theft.
