Texas Compliance, LLC provides comprehensive Gramm-Leach Bliley (GLBA) compliance, reporting, and certification for Texas businesses in Houston, Dallas, Austin, San Antonio (and other surrounding areas) that require assistance with growing federal regulations.

As for the Gramm–Leach–Bliley Act (GLBA), it contains three highly important elements regarding the privacy of information, of which businesses, primarily "financial institutions," need to be aware:

  • Financial Privacy Rule

  • Safeguards Rule

  • Pretexting Protection

The Financial Privacy Rule of The Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act actually requires "financial institutions" to provide each consumer with a privacy notice at the time the consumer relationship is established and annually thereafter, and it must also explain the information collected about the consumer, how the information is shared, used, and protected. There must also be a right to opt out of the information being shared with other parties pursuant to the provisions of the Fair Credit Reporting Act. Additionally, if the privacy policy changes at any point in time, the consumer is to be notified, ultimately allowing the consumer to opt out again.

Comprehensive GLBA Services for Texas Businesses

Readiness Assessments and Gap Analysis services: A critical component of GLBA compliance is knowing what "compliance" really means; specifically, what systems and supporting resources are to be included in the scope, what personnel are involved, along with identifying and understanding many other critical areas.

Texas Compliance, LLC’s GLBA Readiness Assessments and Gap Analysis services are invaluable when it comes to understanding and implementing all relevant material regarding GLBA requirements, and what specific measures you'll need to undertake for actually meeting and maintaining GLBA compliance.

Policy and Procedure development: If you have been identified as a "financial institution" or a related party for purpose of GLBA compliance, then you’ll need assistance in developing a wide-range information security policy and procedure documents and other supporting materials that meet the strict GLBA requirement for a "written Information Security plan."

Implementation of GLBA practices: While GLBA Readiness Assessments and Gap Analysis findings help identify certain controls and areas requiring remediation, you will still need a strategy for implementing many of the operational requirements for ensuring GLBA compliance. Texas Compliance, LLC can assist in developing an easy-to-follow roadmap for compliance for implementing all necessary procedures and related activities in accordance with GLBA.
