The Revised FTC Safeguards Rule - What It Means and Why It Is More Important Than You Might Think


On October 27th, the FTC issued the final revised version of the agency's Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act Safeguards Rule. The revised Safeguards Rule has been years in the making and marks a significant change in how the agency will regulate data and cybersecurity. For many entities designated as "financial institutions" under GLBA, the new Safeguards Rule will require a rethink of their security program and the security controls they employ.   

Join our panel as they discuss how the new rule may directly and indirectly impact compliance programs for financial institutions and higher education institutions. We will review the new requirements, how they differ from the prior regulation, and consider the possible effects from the new rule beyond financial services.
