Red Flags Rule Training

Employee Red Flags Rule training is a government requirement for Red Flags Rule compliance to ensure employees are educated about the organization’s identity theft prevention program and identity theft prevention techniques in the workplace. Employee identity theft training is one of the key components of an effective identity theft prevention program and Red Flags Rule compliance.

Identity Management Institute is the leading organization which offers registered identity theft certifications with study guide, online exams, video courses, and identity theft prevention program design support for Red Flags Rule compliance and identity theft prevention in the workplace.

The Red Flags Rule is a US government regulation which requires companies exposed to a high risk of identity theft and fraud to implement an identity theft prevention program that includes among other things employee training. Companies in the following categories are required to provide an identity theft prevention training to their employees:

  1. Banks,
  2. Mortgage brokers,
  3. Finance companies,
  4. Investment firms,
  5. Insurance companies,
  6. Healthcare providers,
  7. Automobile dealers,
  8. Utility companies, and
  9. Telecommunications companies.

In addition to the Red Flags Rule, the Federal Financial Institution Examination Council or FFIEC guidelines titled “Authentication in an Internet Banking Environment” also require the identification and detection of identity theft in the online banking environment. More specifically, the guidelines require layered security for improved authentication of online banking customers, improved communication with customers regarding security, risk assessments, and consumer education.
