In 2008, the Federal Trade Commission issued new regulations providing that businesses that extend credit must establish a written ID theft prevention policy (the "Red Flags Rule"). The deadline for compliance is June 1, 2010.
A/E firms could be subject to this Rule, and even if a given firm is arguably not covered, it is a matter of good business practice for all A/E firms to have an anti-ID theft policy in place.
This seminar will answer the questions that every firm should ask about the Red Flags Rule and educate those firms which have not yet created an identity theft prevention program as to what they need to do prior to the June 1, 2010 deadline to get into compliance, including:
- What is the Rule, and Who is Covered?
- What Must an Identity Theft Prevention Program Contain?
- How Do I Set Up A Program?
- What Happens If I Do Not Establish A Program?
