ABSTRACT

Privacy: Federal Financial Regulators Should Take Additional Actions to Enhance Their Protection of Personal Information, Report to the Ranking Member, Committee on Finance, U.S. Senate   [open pdf - 2MB]

From the Highlights: "Federal financial regulators are agencies that supervise the products provided by financial institutions. As part of their oversight responsibilities, many regulators collect and maintain a large amount of consumers' PII [personally identifiable information]. Increased collection and use of PII by agencies can pose challenges in ensuring the protection of individuals' privacy. GAO [Government Accountability Office] was asked to review regulators' handling of PII. This report examines (1) what mission-related PII selected federal financial regulators collect, use, and share, and (2) the extent to which selected regulators ensure the privacy of the PII they collect, use, and share, in accordance with federal requirements and guidance."
