Identify Theft and FTC Red Flag
North Carolina law provides that a business which operates in North Carolina and collects personally identifiable information (social security number, drivers license number, date of birth, etc.) on individuals (including employees and customers), the business is required to maintain an Identify Theft Policy. The Federal Trade Commission now requires businesses to identify “red flags” which are areas for possible identify theft and to adopt a written policy to protect personally identifiable information maintained by the business.
If your business has not adopted a written policy, we will be glad to assist you in preparing a policy for your business.
