Who Should Attend:
Frontline and customer service employees, and any utility employee who interacts directly with customers or has access to customer information.
Red Flag Rules are the common name used to describe the requirements of Section 114 of the Fair and Accurate Credit Transaction Act of 2003 (FACTA or FACT Act). All organizations covered by the Rules must have developed and implemented written identity theft prevention programs by the time of this class. If you interact with customers or have access to customer data, you probably have questions about how the rules affect you and how you can help to implement the policies established at your utility. This webinar will provide an overview to help address those concerns.
The webinar will also briefly cover the requirements of Section 315 of the FACTA, which pertain to reconciliation of address disputes.
After participating in this webinar, attendees will understand:
- The three keys to preventing identity theft: deter, detect, and defend
- What is an identity theft prevention policy?
- Why does my employer have an identity theft prevention policy?
- Statistics that identity theft as a growing crime
- How identity theft affects the utility industry
- The role as a staff person or frontline associate
