The Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA), also known as The Financial Modernization Act of 1999, was enacted to ensure that companies defined as under the law as “financial institutions” provide protection and confidentiality of their customer’s records and information. As part of its implementation of the Act, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) issued the Safeguards Rule, which requires financial institutions under FTC jurisdiction to have measures in place to keep customer information secure. They are required to perform security risk assessments, develop and implement security solutions that effectively detect, prevent, and allow timely incident response, and perform auditing and monitoring of their security environment.
