Red Flags Rule Enforcement Now In Effect.

Red Flags

After being postponed 5 times, enforcement of the Red Flags Rule (RFR), went into effect on January 1, 2011.  The Red Flags Rule is one of the 19 provisions of the Federal Trade Commission's (FTC) Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act (FACTA) passed back in 2003.  Do not confuse the Enforcement issue with the Compliance issue.  The compliance deadline for the Red Flags Rule was back on November 1, 2008. But, up until January 1, being out of compliance with the RFR was an infraction comparable to jaywalking.  The FTC can now assess FACTA's non-compliance fines of $3,500 per violation.

Why Using An Office Shredder WILL NOT Protect Your Business
Office Shredder

You know that little piece of equipment always hid in the corner that EVERY employee is supposed to use to shred all of the required documentation in your office to remain in compliance. You know, the one that sits and gathers dust because it only shreds three pieces of paper at a time and no one wants to take the time to shred that entire box of documents.  Read on for more reasons why using a little office shredder will probably get you into more trouble and cost you more money than using a qualified third party company to partner with to provide these services for you.
