Financial Privacy in the States: How Consumers Benefit From Personal Information Safeguards

Bookmark and Share Report Misuse or Glitches

Abstract:

Federal regulation riddled with loopholes has left large bank conglomerates and other financial institutions with too much leeway to share consumers' private information and too little responsibility for the consequences. Financial Privacy in the States documents the growing concerns that Americans have about financial privacy, presents a survey of state laws that have helped fill regulatory gaps in the financial privacy sphere, and provides an estimate of the economic burden consumers currently bear as a result of inadequate privacy safeguards.
