FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT IS NPI?
The American Land Title Association uses the term “Non-public Personal Information,” or NPI, to refer to confidential information that is generally unavailable to the general public. Records that have someone’s name – even just a first initial and last name – plus their Social Security Number, Driver’s License Number, State-Issued ID Number, Credit Card accounts, bank accounts, etc. – constitute NPI.
AREN'T WE REQUIRED TO DO SOME OF THIS?
Yes. Federal and state laws (including the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act) require title companies to develop a written information security program that describes the procedures they employ to protect Non-public Personal Information. The program must be appropriate to Company’s size and complexity, the nature and scope of Company’s activities, and the sensitivity of the customer information Company handles. A Company evaluates and adjusts its program in light of relevant circumstances, including changes in Company’s business or operations, or the results of security testing and monitoring.
The trick, of course, is to live up to the written plan – and keep it current with best practices.
WHAT ELSE DO I HAVE TO CONSIDER?
Can your company continue to operate if it was hit by fire or flooding? Have you done criminal background checks on your employees? Have your service providers done criminal background checks on their employees? Is your team trained regulary on best network security practices, including phishing attacks and cyber fraud? How are you managing archived records and past transaction records? How are you guaranteeing security when everyone uses their personal phones or tablets to access your network? How do you secure data when people take work home with them on a laptop? We could go on, but you get the idea.
