Recently, the SEC and CFTC jointly proposed new red flag rule under Section 1088 of the Dodd-Frank Act. The proposal is aimed at protecting investors from identity theft by requiring SEC-regulated entities to implement a written identity theft program centered on identifying red flag rules and providing appropriate responses to red flags.
The Knowledge Group is assembling a panel of experts who will help you understand how to navigate the proposed rule (if approved) with an emphasis on best practices moving forward. A live interaction with the audience in a question and answer format is also included in this event.
