Alternate Title: EO 13681: Improving the Security of Consumer Financial Transactions

"Given that identity crimes, including credit, debit, and other payment card fraud, continue to be a risk to U.S. economic activity, and given the economic consequences of data breaches, the United States must take further action to enhance the security of data in the financial marketplace. While the U.S. Government's credit, debit, and other payment card programs already include protections against fraud, the Government must further strengthen the security of consumer data and encourage the adoption of enhanced safeguards nationwide in a manner that protects privacy and confidentiality while maintaining an efficient and innovative financial system. By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, and in order to improve the security of consumer financial transactions in both the private and public sectors, it is hereby ordered as follows: Section 1. Secure Government Payments. […] Sec. 2. Improved Identity Theft Remediation. […] Sec. 3. Securing Federal Transactions Online. […] Sec. 4. General Provisions."
