Introduction to the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act

The Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA) was signed into law in 1999 and directly affects financial institutions, including insurance companies and agencies. At the heart of GLBA is a requirement that financial institutions provide a privacy notice to their customers and restrict what non-public personal information (NPI) they share about customers with third parties. Financial institutions are also required to provide security and integrity of customers’ NPI by way of physical and electronic means.

While Georgetown University is primarily an educational institution and its areas covered by GLBA are few, the University is committed to satisfying the law in all its financial processes. This site provides detailed information on University policies and procedures designed to facilitate compliance with GLBA.
