Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA)

aka The Financial Modernization Act of 1999

Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA), also known as the Financial Modernization Act of 1999, is a U.S. law that requires financial institutions to explain how they share and protect their customers’ private information. To maintain GLBA compliance, financial institutions must tell their customers how they share the customers’ sensitive data. Financial institutions must also inform customers of their right to opt-out of their personal data being shared with third parties. Finally, firms must assure specific protections to customers’ private data in accordance with a written information security plan created by the institution.

While GLBA has been in place for more than two decades, changes are coming. The comment period for amending the Privacy Rule (16 CFR Part 313) and the Safeguards Rule portions of the GLBA concluded in the summer of 2019 and SilverSky is helping clients to prepare for new regulatory demands.
