If you have questions about the Federal Trade Commission’s recently amended Safeguards Rule, you’ll want to attend our ACA How: Safeguards Rule Implementation webinar on Friday, June 9 from noon to 12:30 p.m. CT.
The Safeguards Rule introduces core data security principles that covered companies must implement. You’ll need to be compliant with this rule by June 9, 2023—a deadline extension that was achieved thanks in part to advocacy efforts from ACA International.
To pass the FTC audits, you’ll need to be defensible and provide a strong case that your information security program is secure and running smoothly.
Not sure if you are ready for June 9? ACA is here to help.
Register for this interactive session, “Haven’t Started Meeting the Safeguards Rule? Do This,” where experts from TPx Communications, a member of our Alliance ACA program, will help you figure out what you can tackle in-house and where you need to outsource. We will also help you understand the rule’s requirements and how to become defensible by working on a plan today.
Plus, if you are already a Training Zone subscriber, you will have full access to the FTC Safeguards Rule Q&A document, which provides answers to questions from each session we’ve held so far, covering topics such as small agency operations, how to comply with the new rule when you have WFH employees, implementing vulnerability scans, compliance best practices and more. Here a few examples:
- We have found that some of our vendors and clients need to be made aware of the Safeguards Rules. Is there a template to send to them to sign off to acknowledge they are in compliance with the rule?
- Is it defensible if an organization has some or parts of the Safeguards Rule started/completed but not in its entirety by June 9?
- What would the process be at the FTC to examine companies and their InfoSec program?
- Do we need to have a specific Safeguards Rule policy if everything in it is already included in our security policies for FISMA audits, or should I have an amendment for the Safeguards Rule?
Find out the answers to these questions and more by signing up today!
And don’t forget, our ACA How: Safeguards Rule Implementation series—free for all Training Zone subscribers—includes two more opportunities for you to learn about the rule:
