Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act


The Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA) of 1999

A robust overview of the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA) that includes how the act came to be and how it aims to protect the privacy of consumer and customer data via the Financial Privacy Rule and the Safeguards Rule

Course Description

For organizations engaged in significant financial services, complying with the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA) is critical. Doing so not only ensures that customer and consumer data is appropriately protected, but it also protects the organization’s reputation and helps avoid legal action and fines – as high as $100,000 per violation – by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC).

This course is designed to fit snugly into an organization’s plan for GLBA compliance. It is designed to not only explain what the GLBA is but also the rationale behind the Act and the action steps that an average employee can take to help improve the security of customer/consumer data.
