Date Approved 
Feb. 12, 2020

Pacific University developed this Identity Theft Prevention Policy pursuant to the Federal Trade Commission’s Red Flags Rule, which implements Section 114 of the Fair and Accurate Credit Transaction (FACT) Act of 2003. The purpose is to establish an Identity Theft Prevention Policy designed to detect, prevent and mitigate identity theft in connection with the opening of a covered account or an existing covered account and to provide for continued administration of the policy.

This protection policy applies to students, employees, board members, contractors, consultants, temporary workers, and other workers at the University, service providers, including all personnel affiliated with third parties.

Pacific University shall include policies and procedures to:

  1. Identify relevant red flags to ensure the detection of possible risk of identity theft to customers and incorporate those red flags into the policy;
  2. Detect red flags that have been incorporated into the policy;
  3. Respond appropriately to any red flags that are detected to prevent and mitigate identity theft; and
  4. Ensure the policy is updated periodically to reflect changes in risks to customers and to the safety and soundness of the creditor from identity theft

Administration of the policy is with the Vice President of Finance and Administration in development, implementation and oversight. This includes ongoing staff training and oversight of service provider arrangements to ensure compliance.
