The rule requires financial institutions to provide customers with a notice of its privacy policies and practices and in restricted disclosure of certain non-public information to third parties. In this era of identity theft and sophisticated financial criminals, this rule is increasingly on the radar of many financial institutions.
The Knowledge Congress is assembling a panel of distinguished professionals and key regulators to help the public understand the relevance of Regulation S-P in today's business environment. The speakers will present their expert opinions in a two-hour LIVE Webinar.
