The program shows recent federal legislation related to computer security law as it relates to the private information of individuals.  The programs details two federal statutes that govern important privacy areas: banking and health care. They are: The Gramm Leach Bliley Act and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act.

The Gramm Leach Bliley Act (GLBA) is also known the Financial Modernization Act of 1999 and is a federal law enacted in the U.S. to control the ways that financial institutions deal with the private information of individuals. There are three sections of the Act: The Financial Privacy Provisions; The Safeguards Rule or Protection of Data; and, Pretexting Provisions which prohibit accessing private information using false pretenses.

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 is a rule enacted by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' Office of Civil Rights to modify the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Privacy, Security and Brach Notification Rules to implement statutory amendments under the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act. 

This material provides a continued examination of the process and procedure as it relates to information technology and privacy laws in computer security. Computers are about data, data needs to be protected, and thus, privacy is a paramount issue.
