Endpoint Security Considerations for Achieving GLBA Compliance
Rebooting the global financial system may take years. The international move to new regulatory organizations will require financial institutions to change the way they do business. No one knows exactly how the system will change yet, but one thing is certain: financial institutions will be required to protect the security and confidentiality of customer information. The Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA) of 1999 (P.L. 106-102) defines guidelines and standards for safeguarding customer information. These rules apply to all financial institutions doing business in the U.S. New laws and financial regulations for the coming reboot may change GLBA, but increasing threats to customer data will only guarantee tighter security requirements.
