The SEC's identity theft red flags rules require certain SEC-regulated entities to adopt a written identity a programme to combat theft using policies and procedures that:
– Determine the appropriate red flags for identity theft;
– Find the occurrence of certain warning signs;
– In response to the identified red flags, act properly; and
– regularly update the identity theft prevention strategy.
The administration of the program, including staff training and service provider oversight, must also be provided by the organisations that are required to adopt identity theft programs. The rules don’t specify which red flags are required, demand particular policies and procedures to spot potential red flags, or offer a particular technique for spotting red flags. To assist businesses in managing their programs, the rules do, however, include general guidelines and illustrations of warning signs. A programme to combat identity theft should be suitable for the entity’s size, complexity, and activity scope. for more information see iSoftpull.
According to SEC regulations, organisations under its supervision that issue debit or credit cards must also take specific preventative measures if they get a request for a new or replacement card soon after getting a notification of an account holder's address change. Few, if any, SEC-regulated entities are anticipated to be subject to these "card issuer" rules, according to the SEC.
Entities Subject to the Identity Theft Red Flags Rules
The SEC’s identity theft red flags rules apply to SEC-regulated organisations that fall under the FCRA’s definition of financial institutions or creditors, and they mandate the adoption of identity theft prevention measures by those organisations that manage covered accounts. Most registered brokers, dealers, and investment companies, as well as some registered investment advisers, fall under the category of SEC-regulated entities that are likely to be eligible as financial institutions or creditors and maintain covered accounts.
