Many financial institutions that offer products or services to customers like loans, insurance, investment advice tend to share the customers’ information with their business partners or affiliates. In such a regular course of business, there is a greater chance of the data or financial information misuse. To secure the private information of customers’, Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA) which is also known as the Financial Services Modernization Act of 1999 was passed by U.S. Congress.

To comply with GLBA, a company should meet the following three rules.

The Financial Privacy Rule – regulating collection and disclosure of customers’ private financial information

The Safeguards Rule – organizations should implement programs for the security and protection of the information.

The Pretexting provisions – organizations should prohibit the practice of pretexting or access to customers’ private information by false pretense.
