GLBA Certification
(Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act)

Amendments to strengthen the Safeguards Rule for Customer Information under the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA) impact all public and private Title IV higher education institutions that store and use any person’s non-public or personal data. Institutions must achieve compliance before the end of 2022 (December 9, 2022). Under GLBA, penalties for non-compliance can include fines up to $100,000 per violation, criminal penalties, and the revocation of licenses. 

$10,000 Fee includes a comprehensive evaluation of Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA) compliance for systems, processes, and procedures. The comprehensive assessment is guided by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) guidance and recommendations. Assessment is conducted by experienced and credentialed GLBA professionals who identify gaps and priorities; create a short- and long-term remediation plan; advise IT, Finance, Financial Aid, and compliance departments; produce a final report, certification document, badging, and follow-up.
