Consumer privacy, Fed Bank update on NAFCU Cyber and Payments Committee agenda
NAFCU's Cybersecurity and Payments Committee will hear from the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago's Tim Boike today on the Fed's efforts to make payments more secure. The committee will also discuss the latest developments in state consumer privacy legislation and the CFPB and Federal Reserve's proposed changes to remittances and same-day ACH.
Boike, vice president of industry relations at the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, is set to update the committee on the Fed's work to identify and mitigate payments fraud, including its recently-launched effort related to synthetic identity payments fraud. He will also discuss the Federal Reserve's Fraud Definitions Work Group, which is developing a more consistent and holistic view of the terminology used and other ongoing efforts to reduce fraud risk and advance the safety security and resiliency of the U.S. payment system.
Also on the agenda:
State Consumer Privacy Legislation
The California Department of Justice plans to publish a proposed rule on the California Consumer Protection Act (CCPA) this fall that would establish procedures to facilitate consumers' rights under the CCPA and provide guidance to businesses on how to comply with the law. At least 10 states have introduced draft bills to impose obligations on businesses to provide consumers with more control of their personal data. NAFCU staff will discuss these state-level developments as well as the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the likelihood of federal privacy law.
Last month, the CFPB published a request for information (RFI) to gather feedback on principle issues relating to its remittance transfer rule. Currently, credit unions and insured financial institutions are permitted to estimate certain costs or amounts that must be disclosed under the bureau's final remittance rule; however, the temporary exception that allows such estimates is set to expire on July 21, 2020. NAFCU's Regulatory Alert notes that some credit unions use the temporary exception to estimate fee and exchange rate information that cannot be known prior to sending a remittance transfer. The committee will consider credit unions' reliance on the temporary exemption to provide remittance services to members and how compliance costs scale with the volume of remittance transfers.
Enhancements to the National Settlement Service and Fedwire Fund Service
The Federal Reserve has proposed changes to its banks' payment services to facilitate the adoption of a later same-day ACH processing and settlement window. Under this proposal, daily operating hours of the National Settlement Service (NSS) would be extended by one hour to allow the private-sector ACH operator to settle its in-network transactions. The committee will discuss whether the proposed enhancements will benefit credit union members, and what credit union changes to internal processes or technologies would be needed to facilitate the reduced windows between NSS and Fedwire closings.
The committee will meet again September 3.
