Complying with the Red Flags Rule
The Red Flags Rule requires financial institutions and creditors, such as banks, credit unions, auto dealers, mortgage brokers, utility companies and telecommunications companies and other transaction account-based companies to develop a written program that identifies and detects the relevant “Red Flags” or warning signs of identity theft. The Identity Theft Prevention Program must also describe appropriate responses that would prevent and mitigate the crime and detail a plan to update the program. Your “Red Flags” program must be managed by senior company employees and include the appropriate staff training.
The reason for the new regulation is simply that identity crime is escalating out of control. FBI statistics show USA companies spend $67 billion annually combating cybercrime; and consumers lose over $50 billion to identity theft and recovery expenses every year, according to the Federal Trade Commission. Regulators know that financial institutions can play a critical role in the fight against identity crime by implementing the new Red Flags requirements.
The Red Flag regulations require all applicable institutions to implement identity theft protection programs to include: reasonable policies and procedures for preventing identity theft, the ability to track red flag activities and to notify victims.
Compliance with the comprehensive regulation can be addressed by implementing the seven measures detailed in the following Red Flags Checklist. These measures include Initial Risk Assessment, Policies and Procedures Manual, Staff Training on Program Implementation, New Account Authentication, Validation of Change of Address Requests, Anti-Phishing Program and Identity Theft Protection
