The Federal Trade Commission has updated its Safeguards Rule to require certain financial companies to report data breaches and other security incidents. The ruling pertains to non-bank financial institutions such as mortgage brokers, accounting services, motor vehicle dealers that issue loans and payday lenders. Banks are already subject to strict cybersecurity reporting rules from the Security and Exchanges Commission.

The updated rule requires non-bank financial companies to notify the FTC “no later than 30 days” after the discovery of a data or security breach where information of at least 500 consumers has been put at risk.

The Safeguards Rule, which was implemented in 2021, requires non-bank financial institutions to “develop, implement, and maintain a comprehensive security program to keep their customers’ information safe.”
