Gramm Leach Bliley

The Gramm Leach Bliley Act, also known as the Financial Modernization Act of 1999, is a federal law that compels a financial institution to “respect the privacy of its customers and to protect the security and confidentiality of those customers’ non-public personal information.” The law provides for stiff penalties for companies found to be in violation of its regulations.
