Financial institutions collect personal information from customers every day, from names and addresses to bank account and Social Security numbers. The Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act’s Safeguards Rule requires those institutions to develop, implement, and maintain a comprehensive information security program. As part of its regulatory review process, the FTC has proposed changes to the Rule. Join us on July 13, 2020, for Information Security and Financial Institutions: An FTC Workshop to Examine the Safeguards Rule, where FTC staff and guest speakers will explore the issues. And take a look at the just-released agenda to check out what’s up for discussion.
