"The financial services industry faces a significant challenge in keeping current with the explosion of privacy laws, especially in the last couple of years," noted CCH Business and Finance Group marketing manager Peggy Hayner. "Financial Privacy Law Guide is the only resource that brings together in one place expert compliance guidance, along with word-for-word federal and state laws and regulations, interpretative releases and court cases."

New Guide Offers Fast Access to Wide Range of Information

CCH’s Financial Privacy Law Guide is designed to be the complete, comprehensive answer to the needs of financial services organizations which, since the passage of the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, are faced with ever-changing and expanding compliance challenges.

With Gramm-Leach-Bliley requirements at the core of Financial Privacy Law Guide, the new two-volume resource then extends beyond, to additional areas of federal and state regulation.

Privacy rules for health records, the Fair Credit Reporting Act, Bank Secrecy, the Freedom of Information Act, Electronic Fund Transfers, Identity Theft, the Right to Financial Privacy Act, tax matters privacy, International Privacy directives and state privacy statutes (including emerging insurance privacy laws) are just some of the other major topics within the product's scope.

Applicable regulations of the federal bank regulators, Federal Trade Commission, Securities and Exchange Commission, Commodity Futures Trading Commission, National Credit Union Administration, Internal Revenue Service, Department of Health and Human Services and other federal agencies are included.

Turn Information into Action with Ease

Federal laws, regulations and related materials are organized topically, with state laws and regulations organized by state, for easy comparison among jurisdictions. The Guide provides complete, "plain English" explanations, so you can quickly assess how the acts and rules apply to your institution.

Monthly updates keep subscribers informed on rule adoptions and proposals, court decisions and legislative activity in this fast-moving area of law. And, a handy monthly report letter alerts subscribers to all pending federal and state developments pertaining to financial privacy.

Useful tools will help you put information into action. Sample policies help subscribers implement new procedures and develop action plans, while Q&A sections provide real-life examples of how the laws apply in an organization.
