FTC Postpones Safeguards Workshop

By Staff Writer April 27, 2020 261

The Federal Trade Commission announced that it has postponed its workshop seeking input on proposed changes to the Safeguards Rule under the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act until July 13. The event will be held online.

The virtual workshop, originally scheduled to take place May 13, will continue to focus on some of the issues raised in response to amendments the FTC has proposed making to the Safeguards Rule, which requires financial institutions to develop, implement, and maintain a comprehensive information security program. In 2019, the FTC sought comments on the proposed amendments to the Safeguards Rule.

The FTC has extended the deadline to submit a comment on the topics that will be examined at the workshop until August 12, 2020. Instructions for filing comments can be found in the Federal Register notice, which will be published soon. Those interested in participating as a panelist at the workshop can email the FTC at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by May 14. The workshop will be webcast on the FTC’s website.
