Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act

Financial Privacy Training

Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act Training


This financial privacy training video (~4.5 minutes) discusses the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA) – scope, notice, confidentiality, data sharing, and security. The video also explains why protecting the privacy and security of financial data is important.

Topics covered include:

• Identity Theft: Why Protecting Financial Data Matters
• Background About GLBA
• GLBA’s Scope
• Non-Public Personal Information
• Notice Requirements
• Confidentiality
• Data Sharing
• Safeguards Rule

Training under GLBA is required via its Safeguards Rule, 16 CFR 314.4.  The training requirement is rather vague, but interagency guidance recommends that organizations should: “Train staff to recognize and respond to schemes to commit fraud or identity theft, such as guarding against pretext calling; Provide staff members responsible for building or maintaining computer systems and local and wide-area networks with adequate training, including instruction about computer security; and Train staff to properly dispose of customer information.”

The interactive quiz consisting of 4 questions tests on and reinforces the lessons in the video.

    About TeachPrivacy and Our Training Philosophy

    Daniel Solove Privacy Awareness Training TeachPrivacy was founded by Professor Daniel J. Solove, the leading expert on privacy and data security law. He is deeply involved in the creation of all training programs because he believes that training works best when made by subject-matter experts and by people with extensive teaching experience.

    According to Professor Solove: “Great training isn’t about slickness or tricks. It is about teaching. The goal is to make people understand, care, and remember. Great training is made with genuine passion – to make people love training, it must be made with love. Excellent substance is essential. The material must be explained clearly, understandably, and concretely. The content must be short and to the point – and it must be engaging. Slickness and gimmicks can’t compensate for lackluster substance.”

    TeachPrivacy provides privacy awareness training, information security awareness training, phishing training, HIPAA training, FERPA training, PCI training, as well as training on many other privacy and security topics.

    Professor Solove is a law professor at George Washington University Law School. He has taught privacy law every year since 2000, has published 10 books and more than 50 articles, including the leading textbook on information privacy law and a short guidebook on the subject. His LinkedIn blog has more than 1 million followers. Click here for more information about Professor Solove.
