Product details

Consumers are highly sensitive about maintaining their privacy these days, and they‘ve communicated their concern to Congress. Also, data breaches have resulted in dozens of class action lawsuits and investigations by state attorneys general. And, the Federal Trade Commission, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and the federal banking agencies have been aggressive in responding to issues with respect to privacy and data security. As a result, bankers and their legal counsel need to keep a close watch on the legislative and regulatory requirements regarding financial privacy and the liability for violating those requirements.

One resource, The Law of Financial Privacy, can help you do that. This two-volume set covers Fair Credit Reporting Act, Financial Privacy Act, Bank Secrecy Act, and Internal Revenue Code requirements. Plus you get discussions of state financial privacy laws, use of technology, and use and protection of confidential information.

Here‘s what makes this publication really unique:
• Every chapter addresses a particular area of financial privacy law, and tells the user its background, its purpose, what the law covers and what the bank‘s obligations are under this law.
• It provides a practical discussion of the developing federal laws affecting privacy, as well as an overview of the privacy laws and principles at the state and international levels.
• Summaries of court decisions give you a quick look at where you might be vulnerable.
• Sample forms and agency materials give you practical tools for making compliance with financial privacy laws easier.
• Regular updates mean your best reference source has the latest information, so you don‘t have to go looking for it elsewhere.

The abundance of financial privacy laws, the compliance burden on bank officials and others in the financial services industry, and avid public interest in the loss of personal privacy combine to make The Law of Financial Privacy an important addition to your library.
