Effective August 1, 2009, the FACTA Red Flag rules go into effect. What are the Red Flag rules? In short, it requires businesses to develop and implement a program that will identify potential identity theft through suspicious activities. These patterns of suspicious activities are called Red Flags. Every business must create a compliance program to identify and respond to these Red Flags. All employees of the business must also be trained as well. It is important that you know that the Federal Trade Commission will enforce these Red Flag rules.
