Protecting Personal Financial Data of US Citizens

GLBA Enables Large Financial Services Organization Mergers

The Gramm–Leach–Bliley Act (GLBA) is a modernization of certain aspects of the US financial system. It removed barriers that prevented a financial services organization from acting as a combination of an investment bank, a commercial bank, and as an insurance company.

Mandatory Personal Data Requirements

As a result of the increased risk to personal data that would be caused by resulting corporate mergers, GLBA includes three requirements for personal data protection. These three requirements, the Financial Privacy Rule, the Safeguards Rule, and the Pretexting Protection, are mandatory for all US financial institutions.
