Stay abreast of changing customer information security requirements ¿ The consumer privacy provisions in the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLB Act), the health information requirements in HIPAA, the Children¿s Online Privacy Protection Act and the safe harbor provisions to comply with the EU Directive on Data Protection all impose a duty to provide reasonable security over customer information. FPLG presents the rules required under these Acts, including the GLB Act Safeguards Rule, HIPAA Security Rule and the Interagency Security Guidelines, that companies must comply with to guard customer data and implement security programs. State laws requiring customer notification when there has been a data security  breach at a financial institution are also included.

FPLG helps institutions and their service providers comply with this duty to destroy customer information.
