Red Flag Rule - Identity Theft Prevention

Federal Trade Commission (FTC) Red Flags Rule (RFR) at UNH

What Is RFR?  From the FTC website:

The Red Flags Rule requires many businesses and organizations to implement a written Identity Theft Prevention Program designed to detect the warning signs — or "red flags" — of identity theft in their day-to-day operations. By identifying red flags in advance, businesses will be better equipped to spot suspicious patterns that may arise -- and take steps to prevent a red flag from escalating into a costly episode of identity theft.

Does RFR Apply To Your Department At UNH?

To determine if your department must apply the Red Flags program, complete the  Identity Theft Prevention Program Self-Assessment Form   If your department falls within the scope of the program's requirements, you must be compliant.

Compliance Assistance:

ISS offers detailed program information in 'Red Flags Minimum Standards' as well as  awareness level training or custom workshops.  UNH departments can request the standards and/or training by  contacting ISS .
