Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA)

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 to their customers how they share and protect their sensitive information
  • Inform customers of their right to opt-out of their personal data being shared with third parties
  • Assure specific protections to customers’ private data in accordance with a written information security plan created by the institution.

In January 2022, the Federal Trade Commission amended the Privacy Rule (16 CFR Part 313) and the Safeguards Rule under the GLBA. Among the changes, the updated Safeguards Rule expands the definition of “financial institutions” to include non-banking companies such as mortgage lenders, fintech, and accountants, and motor vehicle dealers.

SilverSky helps both financial institutions and non-bank companies meet their cybersecurity compliance obligations under GLBA to keep their customers’ information safe.
