SAN DIEGO, CA – To help organizations determine myth from reality when it comes to compliance, ID Analytics, a leader in consumer risk management, will host a webinar discussing the key privacy-related laws and regulations that pose compliance challenges to organizations. Featuring experts from the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and U.S. Treasury, the webinar will take place on Thursday, March 15, 2012 at 3:30 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.

He will be joined by Gary Sutton, senior attorney for financial crimes with the U.S. Treasury, and Steven Toporoff, an attorney with the FTC’s Division of Privacy and Identity Protection.

  • Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act Privacy and Safeguards Rules;
  • FTC Act’s “unfair or deceptive practices” provisions;
  • The Dodd-Frank Act;
  • Red Flags Rule;
  • USA PATRIOT Act “know your customers” requirements; and
