Abandoned Records Task Force to Meet

Bookmark and Share

A task force, including NAID Executive Director Bob Johnson, a representative of the FTC, and state-level privacy professionals and representatives of the Federal Trade Commission, will meet next week to begin the process of developing recommendations for dealing with the issue of abandoned records. While abandoned records have long been a thorn in the side of those seeking to protect such information, concern has grown amid the widespread failure of mortgage companies.

One of the most challenging issues related to records abandonment is defining liability for their secure destruction when there is no trace of the original custodian.
