The Federal Trade Commission, along with the banking regulatory agencies, has issued regulations intended to protect consumers from identity theft. Under the Red Flags Rule, as it is known, creditors with covered accounts are required to adopt and follow a written identity theft policy. Most colleges and universities are likely subject to the rule. After several delays, FTC began officially enforcing the identity theft rules under 16 CFR 681.2 on January 1, 2011.
