Description: Over 17 years ago, The Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA) and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) issued the Safeguards Rule and the Privacy Rule, requiring financial institutions to document and implement an Information Security Program to protect customer information. Now, in one of the biggest proposed regulatory changes to the currently vague requirements of GLBA, the FTC proposes including the following controls:

  • Formal Incident Response Plan
  • Designated CISO
  • Least Privileges model and use reviews
  • Physical access restrictions
  • Encryption of customer data at rest and in transit
  • Multifactor authentication
  • Change management
  • Detection of unauthorized access
  • And more...

The FTC also proposes to broaden the scope of covered entities to include critical vendors, FinTech companies, universities, tax preparers, accountants, and many more entities.

Join us to review the proposed changes to the safeguard controls, scope of covered entities, how you can make comments on the proposed changes, and insight into the impacts on our banks, critical vendors, and business in our communities.


Target Audience: Information Security Officer, IT Manager, Risk Officer, Internal Auditor, and Executives looking to understand more about the proposed changes.
