FTC Safeguard Rule:

FTCThe Federal Trade Commission (FTC) Safeguard Rule is a set of guidelines that businesses must follow to protect their client's personal information. Included on the list are healthcare, financial services, retail, and telecommunications.

To comply with the new rule businesses must:

  • designate a qualified person to oversee their information security program,

  • develop a written risk assessment,

  • limit and monitor who can access sensitive customer information,

  • encrypt all sensitive information,

  • train security personnel,

  • develop an incident response plan,

  • periodically assess the security practices of service providers, and

  • implement multi-factor authentication or another method with equivalent protection for anyone accessing customer information.
