Who Should Dial-In
Attorneys, executives, and technical professionals representing companies across various industries, including:
- Businesses or organizations that regularly provide goods or services first and allow customers to pay later, such as utilities, health care providers, lawyers, accountants, and telecommunications companies;
- Businesses or organizations that regularly grant loans, arrange for loans or the extension of credit, or make credit decisions, including finance companies, mortgage brokers, and automobile dealers; and
- Anyone who regularly participates in the decision to extend, renew, or continue credit, including setting the terms of credit.
Why You Should Dial-In
Enforcement of the Federal Trade Commission's (FTC) Red Flags Rule, a measure taken by the FTC to combat identity theft, began on January 1, 2011. Despite an amendment to the federal law mandating the Red Flags Rule signed by President Obama on December 18, 2010, much confusion remains as to who will be deemed a "creditor" under the Rule.
In this one-hour TeleBrieing, our distinguished panel of experts -- including a representative from the FTC, an in-house lawyer for a major financial services organization, and a leading attorney in private practice -- will help you determine which activities potentially make your organization a "creditor" under the Rule, while providing practical guidance for businesses and advocates seeking to comply.
