FTC Safeguards Compliance Program
Are you ready for the new FTC Safeguards Rule?
As of June 9, 2023, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) requires any organization that handles customer financial data to explain its information-sharing practices to consumers and provide strict safeguards around sensitive customer information.
The new rule goes beyond traditional financial companies to include any company that collects personal information from their customers, such as names, addresses, phone numbers, bank and credit card account numbers, income and credit histories, or Social Security numbers. This includes mortgage lenders, tax preparation firms, automobile dealerships, real estate appraisers, retailers that issue their own credit cards and many others.
Yet despite the potential for stiff fines and penalties and the risk to their reputation, many companies are not yet in compliance.
