FTC Will Grant 3 Month "Red Flags" Rule Enforcement Delay

The Federal Trade Commission will delay enforcement of the new “Red Flags Rule” until August 1, 2009, to give creditors and financial institutions more time to develop and implement written identity theft prevention programs. There is still time for your organization to become compliant with these requirements.

Have you developed an Identity Theft Prevention Program?
Is your healthcare organization prepared to prevent, detect, and report Identity Theft Incidents?
Does your staff know how to handle incidents of Medical Identity Theft?

These are issues that all healthcare organizations need to address. How prepared is your organization?
