   LIVE Webcast  


Event Details:                                                                                                                                                          

Recently, the SEC and CFTC jointly proposed new red flag rule under Section 1088 of the Dodd-Frank Act. The proposal is aimed at protecting investors from identity theft by requiring SEC-regulated entities to implement a written identity theft program centered on identifying red flag rules and providing appropriate responses to red flags.

The Knowledge Group is assembling a panel of experts who will help you understand how to navigate the proposed rule (if approved) with an emphasis on best practices moving forward. A LIVE interaction with the audience in a question and answer format is also included in this event.

    • b. Document notices to customers (e.g., initial and annual privacy and opt-out notices)
    • c. Identify relevant red flags

  • 6. Simple Dos and Don’ts when putting your program in place
    • a. Do remember to update your plan when you have a significant change in your business.
    • b. Do get your board and internal controls team up to speed on compliance requirements.
    • c. Do use people with appropriate skills. Your plan will likely incorporate legal, security, fraud, technology and business process expertise.
    • d. Do perform an assessment before you build your program. There’s no need to put controls over accounts that aren’t covered.
    • e. Do talk to peers in your industry. Chances are many of your risks are similar.
    • f. Don’t expect the Red Flags Rule to just go away. The public demand for identity theft protection is too great.
    • g. Don’t put something together hastily. Your plan may have to withstand the scrutiny of an investigator.
    • h. Don’t over-engineer your program. The bad guys are coming up with new ideas faster than you can update a too-detailed plan.
    • i. Don’t forget to get Red Flags assurances from internal audit or another independent source.
    • j. Don’t underestimate training efforts. Keeping skilled identity thieves at bay requires people who know what to look for and what to do when they see it.
    • k. Don’t ignore the rule. In today’s world, active denial of a federal regulation is a very bad idea.
