Safeguards Rule Vendor Compliance

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) issued new amendments to its Safeguards Rule, which requires covered financial institutions to develop, implement, and maintain an information security program with administrative, technical, and physical safeguards designed to protect customer information. The amended Rule’s requirements must all be completed by December 9, 2022.

One of the Safeguards Rule requirements is that dealers “Oversee Service Providers” by:

  1. Taking reasonable steps to select and retain service providers that are capable of maintaining appropriate safeguards for the customer information at issue;
  2. Requiring your service providers by contract to implement and maintain such safeguards; and
  3. Periodically assessing your service providers based on the risk they present and the continued adequacy of their safeguards.
  4. Monitor service providers on an ongoing basis to verify they are maintaining adequate safeguards.
