5 5 Privacy of Client Data The Principle in Practice: The provider complies with all local data privacy laws. Client information is only used in the ways agreed upon at the time of data collection. Consider this: Clients trust financial service providers with very sensitive personal and financial information.

6 6 Use a privacy policy Use appropriate systems Inform clients Use a written privacy policy that governs the gathering, processing, use, and distribution of client data. Use technology that keeps client data secure. Train staff to keep data confidential, secure, and accurate. Inform clients how their information will be used internally and externally— including data shared with 3 rd parties and the use of photos. The Principle in Practice

7 7 Obtain client permission Train clients Obtain client consent for using information in promotions, marketing materials, and other publications; and for sharing personal information with any external parties, including credit bureaus. Offer information, orientation, or educational sessions to clients on how to safeguard information, access codes/ PIN numbers, and group information. The Principle in Practice

8 8 Good practices for privacy and security Ask employees to sign a confidentiality agreement at the same time as their employment contract. Establish a clearly defined “user access hierarchy” for staff accessing sensitive data. Hold periodic campaigns for clients to update their data and incentivize them to participate. Don’t allow information available on the ‘intranet’ to be printed or downloaded for use outside the office.

9 9 Good practices for privacy and security Spot check the security of physical files in branches (e.g. using internal auditors). Train clients on how to keep group information private. Describe the sanctions for the misuse of client data in the staff book of rules.

17 17 Financial institutions satisfy this principle by respecting the privacy of client data and keeping it secure. Maintaining the privacy of client data requires implementing adequate safeguards, systems, and policies, but also informing the client about the use of their personal information and obtaining client consent before sharing it with a third party. Staff and client training is important for making sure privacy and security procedures are successful. Conclusion Call to Action: What “next steps” can your organization take to institutionalize and/or improve systems for maintaining the privacy and security of client data?
