With states passing inconsistent laws and no uniform federal law addressing data privacy, there’s a patchwork of rules for companies to comply with. ALTA is dedicated to helping its members understand what they need to do to comply, if required, with data privacy laws.
ALTA Policy Position
ALTA believes any comprehensive data privacy legislation should include a full entity exemption for entities subject to the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA). Since 1999, this federal law has strictly limited financial institutions’ use and sharing of customers’ personal information. Additionally, financial institutions are required to assure the security of this information and provide comprehensive disclosures to consumers.
