Federal laws now require privacy and security protections for customer financial information
Seminole, FL (PRWEB) July 28, 2006 –
The Security Awareness Company has introduced yet another high content security course: GLBA Security Rule Employee Training. The latest addition to its’ online school http://www.trustedlearning.com targets all organizations within the financial services industry.
“Federal laws now require privacy and security protections for customer financial information,” states Chris Karr, President of Überguard and author of GLBA Security Rule Employee Training, “The laws require training for all workforce members who have workplace access to customer financial information.”
What is the purpose of GLBA? To insure the security and confidentiality of customer data, to protect against any reasonably anticipated threats or hazards to the security or integrity of such data and to protect against unauthorized access to or use of such data that would result in substantial harm or inconvenience to any customer; for example, compromising a customer's identity and/or financial information.
The online GLBA Security Rule Employee Training course covers the rules to safeguard information; legal and ethical.
According to Chris Karr, “Although intentional, malicious activity causes a litany of problems, nothing else causes more privacy and security issues than simple human error.”
“The assurance of the confidentiality, integrity and availability of all the sensitive data kept by an organization is the main goal of any information security program,” says Karr.
Financial institutions face continual changes in the digital world and therefore must continue in its efforts to meet compliance, making the GLBA Security Rule Employee Training (retails $15.00 for a single student, discounts for multiple users) an invaluable asset, a benefit and most of all compliance easily attainable.
