Please note that on Wednesday, October 22, from 2-3pm U.S. Eastern Time,
EDUCAUSE will host a webcast featuring Naomi Lefkovitz from the Federal
Trade Commission (FTC) discussing the new federal regulations to address
identity theft that go into effect November 1, 2008. 

For details and connection instructions, visit 
http://connect.educause.edu/term_view/ID%2BTheft%2BRed%2BFlags
<http://connect.educause.edu/term_view/ID%2BTheft%2BRed%2BFlags>  and
refer to the "FTC Red Flags Webcast" tab under Featured Content. (The
summary for this webcast is also included below for your convenience.)

This Webcast is open to the public at no charge and no registration is
required. It will also be archived and accessible to all.

___________________

Summary: New federal regulations to address identity theft go into
effect November 1, 2008, and are likely to affect colleges and
universities in nuanced ways. Compliance will require careful study and
collaboration among business officers, human resources, legal counsel,
student services, IT, and other affected campus units. The rules require
users of consumer reports to develop reasonable policies and procedures
to apply when they receive a notice of address discrepancy from a
consumer reporting agency. They also require that institutions develop
and implement an Identity Theft Prevention Program for combating
identity theft in connection with new and existing accounts.

Who is subject to and must comply with the regulations on ID Theft Red
Flags and Notices of Address Discrepancy? What business practices at
colleges and universities are covered by the rules? What are some of the
things that entities subject to the rules must do? What role does IT
play in compliance with the rules? What are the penalties for failure to
comply? This webcast will address these and many other questions, in
addition to providing an online forum for community collaboration and
sharing.

Hi Anand:

 

We are affected, or at least that is what my treasurer, GC and myself
believe based on our research into this.    I am currently going through
the final set of red flag rules and trying to prepare a high level
executive summary of what I think this means.  Of the 328 pages I have
been able to drop it down to 120 and am hoping to get that to a document
under 10 pages that is basically a  "this is what you should be doing"
doc.

 

If interested in getting a copy of that document (probably be early next
week before I am finished with it) just let me know.

 

-Kevin

Hi, 

Does anyone know if Educational Institutions are affected by the FTC's
Red flag rule about maintaining an Identity Theft program ? If yes has
anyone implemented or has a roadmap for deployment? 
In my opinion if the rule is indeed applicable, the Institution's Legal
Counsel should drive the initiative and not IT. 

Any suggestions are welcome.
