Red Flag Rules Compliance Software
The Red Flags Rule requires many businesses and organizations to implement a written Identity Theft Prevention Program to detect the warning signs – or “red flags” – of identity theft in their day-to-day operations. By focusing on red flags now, you’ll be better able to spot an imposter using someone else’s identity to get products or services from you. As a practical matter, the Rule applies to you if you provide products or services and bill customers later.
Our software allows most businesses to become compliant with the FTC requirements with a minimum of hassle. The Red Flag Rule Wizard guides you step-by-step through the process of creating and implementing your Identity Theft Prevention Program.
NOTICE: The Federal Trade Commission issued an announcement that it will delay enforcement of the new “Red Flags Rule” until June 1st, 2010 to
give creditors subject to FTC regulation additional time to
develop and implement a written identity theft prevention program. Our software makes creating your compliance plan easy and fast (usually in under ten minutes).
THERE IS STILL TIME TO GET COMPLIANT WITH THE LAW!
No Obligation Trial of the Wizard!
FTC Red Flag Rules Wizard (aka Red Flag Wizard) allows you to easily create an Identity Theft compliance plan. Under the Red Flags Rules, financial institutions and creditors must develop a written program that identifies and detects the relevant warning signs – or “red flags” – of identity theft. These may include, for example, unusual account activity, fraud alerts on a consumer report, or attempted use of suspicious account application documents. The program
must also describe appropriate responses that would prevent and mitigate the crime and detail a plan to update the program. The program must be managed by the Board of Directors or senior employees of the financial institution or creditor, include appropriate staff training, and provide for oversight of any service providers.
The Federal Trade Commission (FTC), the federal bank regulatory agencies, and the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) have issued regulations (the Red Flags Rules) requiring financial institutions and creditors to develop and implement written identity theft prevention programs, as part of the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions (FACT) Act of 2003. The programs must be in place by November 1, 2008, and must provide for the identification, detection, and response
to patterns, practices, or specific activities – known as “red flags” – that could indicate identity theft. The actual enforcement of the regulations have been delayed until June 2010. By that time, every creditor is legally responsible to have a compliance plan in place.
