In 1999, Congress passed the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA) to ensure that financial institutions properly protect the financial information of their customers. The act applies to banks, credit unions, savings and loans institutions, insurance companies, and securities firms, among other institutions.
According to GLBA regulations, financial institutions must:
- Keep customer information secure and private.
- Protect customer information from threats or hazards to security, including unauthorized access.
- Explain how they use customers’ personal information and when they share it.
- Explain how they protect the confidentiality and security of customers’ personal information.
- Explain when customers can opt out of information sharing when allowed by law.
Sound masking can help financial institutions comply with GLBA regulations and show due diligence in protecting their customers’ financial information. Sound masking makes speech unintelligible beyond 15 to 20 feet in open spaces, keeping conversations with and about customers confidential. Sound masking can also provide privacy in private offices. Sound masking will travel through the plenum above private offices and reduce the amount of conversation that can be heard from room to room, allowing for greater speech privacy.
