Red Flag Policy
In compliance with the “Red Flag” regulations issued by the Federal Trade Commission, the federal bank regulatory agencies, and the National Credit Union Administration as part of the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions (FACT) Act, Christian Brothers University is defined as a financial institution due to the account transactions maintained for all constituencies conducting business with the University. As such, CBU must provide a way to detect potential identity theft, and notify affected parties, necessary agencies, and law enforcement authorities.
In the 2008/2009 academic year, a special committee was formed to formalize the university policy and create processes by which all university employees could be educated on the rules, as well as report potential infractions. Each employee is required to complete the acknowledgment form stating they have read the policy and understand it. This committee recognizes that the policy may not be all-inclusive for all departments for maintaining record security and therefore encourages each department to educate itself on the basics at the Federal Trade Commission micro-site, along with the Best Practices from the Business Office, Registrar and ITS.
Potential infractions should be reported through the form listed below. General questions may be addressed to Human Resources.
