Federal Regulations

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPPA) of 1996

Regulates the healthcare industry in the United States and assures that healthcare organizations will be responsible for the secure electronic transmission, secure storage and disposal of patient information.

The first conviction for a violation of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) took place the week of November 19, 2004. Richard W. Gibson was ordered to pay $9,000 in restitution and sentenced to 16 months in jail for taking personal information while employed at a cancer treatment center in Seattle, WA. The information was then used to commit identity theft.

Advice: If you handle medical or insurance records, you better have and practice a certified document destruction program or you are risking jail time under HIPAA.

The Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act of 1999 (GLB)

Financial institutions that obtain nonpublic personal information through the normal course of their business must develop precautions to ensure the security and confidentiality of customer records and information, and to protect against unauthorized access to or use of such records. This includes secure storage, disposal, and sharing of confidential information.

The Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act of 2003

Also known as the FACT Act was signed into law on December 4, 2003. In general, the Act amends the Fair Credit Reporting Act (``FCRA''). The Act contains a number of provisions intended to combat consumer fraud and related crimes, including identity theft, and to assist its victims. Specifically the act requires the destruction of PAPERS CONTAINING CONSUMER INFORMATION. It is hard to imagine any business or organization that is not bound by this law.

Disposal Rule

Sec. 682.3 Proper Disposal of Consumer Information
