New "Red Alert" Identity Theft Prevention Rules

New “Red Flag Rules” Regarding Identity Theft Prevention 
Will Go Into Effect August 1

On August 1, 2009, new federal regulations enforced by the FTC will go into effect; the so-called Red Flag rules, which require businesses to take pro-active measures to detect and prevent identity theft. 

Although the FTC does not appear to have specified final penalty amounts for non-compliance, it is clear that violators can be subject to significant civil penalties, which makes this important for anyone who handles personal identity information of clients or customers. 

To review a bulletin which provides an overview of the Red Flag rules, as well as an appendix that discusses program guidelines to help you comply with the law, please visit 

Further information on the Red Flag rules can be found on the FTC website at 

You can find articles on other topics on the CNA website, in the risk management tab, or directly at and please feel free to forward them to your clients.
