The Law Requires You to Protect Confidential Information!

Like most industries that work with private and sensitive information, banking and finance are heavily regulated and governed. And federal laws designed to protect consumer identities, financial data, and personal privacy come with strict rules and heavy fines. We can help you stay compliant and prevent identity theft.

In addition to financial and banking industry regulations governing data privacy, here are a few of the critical data security laws that also apply.

Gramm-Leach Bliley Act (GLBA)

Gramm-Leach Bliley Act (GLBA) is an act that 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. Financial institutions also have to comply with record retention periods and shred documents regularly.

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.

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 records to prevent identity thefts and unauthorized access to the information.
