Achieving GLBA Compliance with Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization for Desktops
The Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA) was introduced into U.S. law in 1999. The main intent of the GLBA was to open up financial markets by repealing some portions of the Glass-Steagall Act of 1933. A secondary objective of the act was to ensure the privacy and protection of individual financial information by requiring financial institutions to institute appropriate controls and procedures. These requirements have introduced additional complexity into the operations of these organizations and have forced them to rethink how they store, transmit, and dispose of customer data. This paper will illustrate how Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization for Desktops can help organizations comply with specific GLBA mandates while increasing overall efficiency and agility.
