Why You Should Comply With GLBA

As part of the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA), also known as the Financial Modernization Act of 1999, the US government enacted legislation to ensure the protection of customer information. It is mandatory for financial institutions to conduct security risk assessments in order to comply with the GLBA requirements. Financial institutions also need to develop and implement security solutions that effectively detect, prevent, and allow them to respond to incidents in a timely manner. In addition, they are also required to conduct audits and monitoring of the security environment in which they operate.

In order to meet many of the requirements of the GLBA, log data has to be collected, managed, and analyzed. By using Logit.io, many GLBA requirements can be directly met and the cost of complying with others can be dramatically reduced.

What Is GLBA?

The Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLB Act or GLBA) was enacted in 1999 and is also known as the Financial Modernization Act. It is a federal law in the United States that requires financial institutions to disclose how they intend to share and protect the private information of their customers. As part of GLBA compliance, financial institutions must explain their policy regarding the handling of their customer's sensitive data to their customers, inform them of their right to opt out of sharing their personal data with third parties, and apply specific protections to their customers' private data in accordance with a written information security plan developed by the institution, which outlines the institution's commitment to security.

Who Needs To Meet GLBA Compliance?

Financial institutions must comply with the GLBA by explaining their information-sharing practices to their customers and by safeguarding sensitive information. This includes companies that offer consumers the opportunity to obtain financial products or services ranging from loans, investment advice, or insurance, just to name a few.

The field of compliance has been expanded to include emerging industries such as fintech, which are also expected to achieve compliance in order to avoid being penalized by fines of up to $100,000 per violation if they fail to do so. As part of this, fines of up to $10,000 per violation could be imposed on the company directors. Further, criminal penalties of up to five years in prison and professional license revocation may also be imposed.
