SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION

Agency Notice

SUMMARY: The Federal Trade Commission is proposing to amend its Privacy Rule for certain financial institutions subject to the Rule to revise the Rule's scope, to modify the Rule's definitions of ``financial institution'' and ``federal functional regulator,'' and to update the Rule's annual customer privacy notice requirement. The proposed amendments will also remove certain examples in the Rule that apply to financial institutions that now fall outside the scope of the Commission's Rule. This action is necessary to conform the Rule to the current requirements of the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA), as amended by the Dodd-Frank and FAST Acts, and will clarify which financial institutions are covered by the Commission's Rule and their annual customer privacy notice obligations under the Rule. DATES: Written comments must be received on or before June 3, 2019. ADDRESSES: Interested parties may file a comment online or on paper by following the Request for Comment part of the SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION section below. Write ``Amendment to the Privacy of Consumer Financial Information Rule, 16 CFR part 313, Rulemaking No. R411016,'' on your comment and file your comment online at https://www.regulations.gov by following the instructions on the web-based form. If you prefer to file your comment on paper, mail your comment to the following address

Agency Notice

SUMMARY: The Federal Trade Commission (``FTC'' or ``Commission'') requests public comment on its proposal to amend the Standards for Safeguarding Customer Information (``Safeguards Rule'' or ``Rule''). The proposal contains five main modifications to the existing Rule. First, it adds provisions designed to provide covered financial institutions with more guidance on how to develop and implement specific aspects of an overall information security program. Second, it adds provisions designed to improve the accountability of financial institutions' information security programs. Third, it exempts small businesses from certain requirements. Fourth, it expands the definition of ``financial institution'' to include entities engaged in activities that the Federal Reserve Board determines to be incidental to financial activities. Finally, the Commission proposes to include the definition of ``financial institution'' and related examples in the Rule itself rather than cross-reference them from a related FTC rule, the Privacy of Consumer Financial Information Rule. DATES: Written comments must be received on or before June 3, 2019. ADDRESSES: Interested parties may file a comment online or on paper by following the Request for Comment part of the SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION section below. Write ``Safeguards Rule, 16 CFR part 314, Project No. P1454
