Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA)
In-Kind Grant

Prepare for the most significant cybersecurity change in 20 years
to the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA) Safeguards Rule.


Eligible Award Amount: Up To $50,000
Application Deadline: June 30, 2022


Congress enacted the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (‘‘GLB’’ or ‘‘GLBA’’) in 1999. The Act is intended to provide strong privacy and security requirements for all institutions that deal with financial information, with the ultimate goal of protecting the customers and their data. This regulation has been the driver of information security policy at most financial institutions for the last 20 years. The most recent amendment brings major changes to the regulation that must be instituted by December 2022.


The GLBA applies to all U.S. financial institutions and impacts all types of organizations that handle the personal financial information of their customers, including educational institutions. The GLBA amendment was issued as a Final Rule by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) on December 9th, 2021, and the new provisions in part 314.5 will be applicable December 9th, 2022. Schools without prescribed GLBA safeguards may be found administratively incapable (unable to properly administer Title IV funds) by the Department of Higher Education.


Campus Consortium offers an In-Kind Grant to qualified educational institutions for a “GLBA Compliance Assessment and GLBA Mitigation.” The consortium has partnered with OculusIT, an EdTech company with a long history of providing secure technology solutions and services for the education sector. The intent of this In-Kind Grant from the consortium is to subsidize the cost for services that provide assessment, intervention, and corrective action that bring the educational institution into GLBA compliance.
