The Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA) is federal legislation that was enacted by Congress in 1999. The primary purpose of GLBA was to reform the banking industry to allow financial institutions to share information. Colleges and universities are also subject to some of the provisions of GLBA because they collect and maintain financial information about their students and others with whom they interact. For an extensive discussion of GLBA, see the University of Akron's website.

The College’s draft Information Security Program can be found on the Information Technology website.
