Identity Theft Prevention
Personnel who have authorized access to paper and electronic files that contain sensitive personal data, shall be trained to recognize “red flags” of identity theft and to comply with the BYU–Hawaii Identity Theft Prevention Procedure (Appendix A) which addresses the prevention, identification, detection, and mitigation of identity theft in connection with “covered accounts”.
A covered account is
- An account primarily used for personal, family, or household purposes, that involves or is designed to permit multiple payments or transactions, or
- Any other account for which there is a reasonably foreseeable risk to customers or the safety and soundness of the financial institution or creditor from identity theft. This includes any type of account or payment plan that involves multiple transactions or multiple payments in arrears.
A red flag is a pattern, practice, or specific activity that indicates the possible existence of identity theft.
