Identity Theft Prevention Program


On November 9, 2007, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), the Federal bank regulatory agencies, and the National Credit Union Administration jointly issued regulations (72 FR 63718) requiring financial institutions and creditors to develop and implement a written identity theft prevention program. Activities that may indicate identity theft are known as “Red Flags.” The “Red Flag” regulations require implementation of an identity theft prevention program to detect, prevent and respond to patterns, practices or specific activities that may indicate identity theft. They were included in the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act (FACT Act).
