We noticed a new blogger joined ITKE this May Day: Matthew Barach, Esq. CIPP/G.
As his bio notes, Barach, is the founder of Boston Privacy Group, a privacy consulting firm, and the former Internet and Information Privacy Counsel for the New York State Consumer Protection Board (CPB).
Barach will be writing the Think Privacy blog, which will address “timely privacy topics including behavioral advertising, Red Flag Rules, the new Massachusetts regulations, HIPAA, GLBA, data transfer, cloud computing and other emerging privacy issues, laws, regulations and challenges that organizations will continue to face.”
||Since those are all issues and areas we cover, you can expect his posts to show up in our RSS reader. His first post, “The Red Flags Rules are coming, the Red Flags are coming – NOT,” addresses the recent announcement by the FTC that they “will grant a three-month delay of enforcement of ‘Red Flags’ Rule requiring creditors and financial institutions to adopt identity theft prevention programs.” Baruch helpfully linked to the FTC announcement.|
As readers of SearchCompliance.com know, enforcement of the Red Flags Rule has been approaching for some time. Compliance and security professionals alike will now have three more months to get their regulatory ducks in a row.
