Identity Theft Prevention Policy
The Federal Trade Commission, pursuant to the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act, has issued 'red flags' rules pertaining to the prevention of identity theft. All entities engaging in activities covered by the FACTA red flags rules must comply with them. Salem State, after considering the size and complexity of its operations and accounting systems and the nature and scope of its activities, determined that it engages in the types of activities covered by the rules and implemented policy and procedures to prevent identity theft in compliance with the rules. The university's identity theft prevention policy was approved by the Salem State College Board of Trustees on September 23, 2009, and implemented by the university on November 1, 2009. Joseph F. X. Donovan, associate vice president for finance, is the program administrator. The link to the approved policy is below.
