The Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA), also known as the Financial Services Modernization Act, is a deregulation bill meant to enhance competition in the financial services industry – but a major section of the law governs the collection, disclosure, and protection of personal information belonging to consumers.

Money Isn't Everything

GLBA brought sweeping deregulation to banks, but introduced new security and privacy provisions designed to protect the "nonpublic" personal information of customers. With a broad portfolio of solutions, Trustwave can help you get up to speed on and respond to the requirements.

GLBA: Fast Facts and Consequences

  • The notable elements of the law are the Safeguards Rule, Privacy Rule and Pretexting Protections.
  • The Safeguards Rule seeks to ensure the security and confidentiality of customer records and information, while the Privacy Rule requires customers are provided with a notice of privacy policies and practices and the ability to opt out.
  • The law also bars pretexting, which involves individuals lying to gain access to sensitive data.
  • Several federal and state agencies are responsible for enforcement of GLBA, depending on whom the alleged violator is. Fines could reach $100,000 per violation.

Cybersecurity is an ever-evolving discipline. Attacks change, technologies come and go, processes adjust, new compliance mandates are regulated, and people are there to hold it all together. But none of this is new, and not likely to change much. It’s the way of life for today’s security organizations.
