1930.015 Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act: Safeguards to Protect Confidential Financial Information Policy and Procedure


The Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (“GLB” or “Act”) requires “financial institutions” to protect the privacy of their customers, including the customers’ personally identifiable financial information. Though institutions of higher education are not “financial institutions,” they deal with a variety of financial records from students and their parents. The Act requires FIU to develop, implement and maintain a written information security program establishing the administrative, technical and physical safeguards that FIU has, or will put in place, in order to safeguard its customers’ information. This information security program is written in one or more readily accessible parts and addresses administrative, technical and physical safeguards.
