GLBA for Insurance Companies
The Gramm–Leach–Bliley Act (GLBA) is directed toward companies that through the use of modern technology have unprecedented capabilities to collect, analyze and deliver consumer data quickly and inexpensively — yet must protect consumer privacy in the process. The GLBA affects a variety of industries that handle consumer information (banking, insurance, investment, securities, etc.).
Because insurance companies are entrusted with the most sensitive and personal information about their clients — health status, lifestyles and habits, for instance — they face particular challenges and scrutiny in protecting such information. Compliance with regulations and requirements is essential.
