FTC Safeguards Rule

The Federal Trade Commission's (FTC) Safeguards Rule sets out specific requirements for companies to implement comprehensive data security measures to safeguard consumer information. Compliance with the Safeguards Rule not only helps to protect consumer data but also preserves customer trust in a company's ability to keep their data secure.
