Red Flags Rule

Part of the Safeguards Rule, the Red Flags Rule requires financial institutions and creditors to implement a program to detect, prevent, and mitigate instances of identity theft. Affected businesses must develop and implement written identity theft prevention programs. The programs “must provide for the identification, detection, and response to patterns, practices, or specific activities — known as ‘red flags’ — that could indicate identity theft.”
