On May 1, 2009, the FTC began enforcing the “Red Flags Rule” which requires businesses to have programs in place that will recognize and prevent identity theft.
This isn’t just another way to impose upon small business. It’s a way to help consumers and to prevent theft of your hard earned cash. I wrote about the details of the program a while ago over at the OPEN Forum by American Express. You can read about it here.
