Depending on the asset size, compliance costs can vary. While on the surface the new Red Flag regulations may seem like yet another exercise in burden shifting, it is in fact a real opportunity for financial institutions to improve customer satisfaction, increase retention and generate additional fee income. According to a new CA Inc. study, only 8 percent of U.S. consumers say financial institutions and other businesses adequately protect their personal data. And a Unisys corporation survey found 50 percent of households would switch banks for better identity protection. By implementing policies and procedures required to make safeguarding a customer's identity a top priority, banks can immediately add value and increase non-interest income.
