The Federal Trade Commission (“FTC” or “Commission”) is finalizing proposed amendments to its Standards for Safeguarding Customer Information (“Safeguards Rule”), 16 CFR part 314, which require financial institutions to report to the Commission a notification event where unencrypted customer information involving 500 or more consumers is acquired without authorization.

Changing Regulations
As part of this rulemaking, the Commission issued a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (“NPRM”) in 2019,1 as well as a Supplemental Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (“SNPRM”) in 2021. Upon publication of the SNPRM, the Commission previously submitted an associated clearance request with Supporting Statement to OMB. In response, OMB filed a comment on February 4, 2022, requesting that the Commission resubmit the clearance request upon finalizing the proposed rule. Any differences between the FTC's initial clearance request and the instant clearance request are due to minor changes in the finalized information collection requirement and the use of updated mean wage rates.
