BPM-110 Protection of Personally Identifiable Financial and Account Information

February 6, 2009


The University will, to the extent reasonably possible, protect the privacy, security and confidentiality of personally identifiable financial records and information, and take steps to detect, prevent and mitigate identity theft.


This policy covers all personally identifiable financial records and information regardless of where it resides as well as the personally identifiable information of University customers who have “covered accounts” as defined by the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act of 2003.


The Vice President for Finance and Administration will be primarily responsible for development, implementation and enforcement of programs designed to implement this policy.

An Identity Theft Prevention Program and a Gramm-Leach-Bliley Program will be established and all areas, departments, colleges and schools of the University which hold personally identifiable financial records and information and/or covered accounts must comply with the requirements of these programs.
