On December 18, 2010, President Obama signed into law the Red Flag Program Clarification Act, limiting the circumstances in which creditors are covered by the Red Flags Rule. The FTC's Red Flags Rule website offers resources to help entities determine if they are covered and, if they are, how to comply with the Rule. The FTC's website also includes an online compliance template that enables companies to design their own Identity Theft Prevention Program through an easy-to-complete form, as well as articles directed to specific businesses and industries, guidance manuals, and Frequently Asked Questions to help companies navigate the Rule. Several sample campus policies and programs are included below.
