Avoid Other Unintended Consequences of Protecting Against Cyber-Criminals

Written By: Jay L. Hack


Earlier this week, I wrote about not accidentally discriminating against the disabled when implementing cybersecurity systems. Financial Institutions also need to be careful when implementing systems that protect the confidentiality of emails and website disclosures by prohibiting printing them. Most federal and state disclosure laws that permit the electronic delivery of disclosures require that the recipient must be able to print the disclosures.

Today’s Takeaway? Make sure that cybersecurity systems do not disable printing whenever a mandatory disclosure is emailed or displayed on a website.
