The three key sections are the Financial Privacy Rule, the Safeguard Rule, and the Pretexting Provisions.

What must a financial institution include in a privacy notice according to the Financial Privacy Rule?

A privacy notice must explain what information is collected from the consumer, where the information will be shared, how it will be used, the consumer's right to opt-out of information sharing with unaffiliated third parties, and must be provided when the relationship is established and annually thereafter.

What are some best practices recommended by the FTC for protecting NPI?

Best practices include locking rooms and file cabinets where records are kept, securing mobile devices, encrypting customer information, limiting access to information based on necessity, and using strong passwords.

Employees can prevent pretexting by being cautious about divulging NPI, verifying the identity of individuals requesting information, and staying aware of common tactics used by criminals, such as impersonating company executives or affiliated employees.
