Employee Red Flags Rule training is a government requirement for training employees about identity theft prevention and detection 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 manages the leading registered training and certification program for Red Flags Rule compliance and identity theft prevention in the workplace.
The Red Flags Rule which is a Federal government regulation requires companies which face a high risk of identity theft and fraud to implement an identity theft prevention program which includes employee training. The following companies are required to provide an identity theft prevention training to their employees:
- Mortgage brokers,
- Finance companies,
- Investment firms,
- Insurance companies,
- Healthcare providers,
- Automobile dealers,
- Utility companies, and
- 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.
