GLBA COMPLIANCE AND RISK MANAGEMENT

WHAT IS GLBA?

The Gramm Leach Bliley Act (GLBA), also known as the Financial Services Modernizing Act, is an act intended to increase and enforce the standard for information security in Financial Services.

PENALTIES FOR NONCOMPLIANCE

The penalties for GLBA violations are quite severe. A financial institution can be fined up to $100,000 for each violation. The officers and directors of the financial institution can be fined up to $10,000 for each violation. Criminal penalties include imprisonment for up to 5 years, a fine, or both.
