Startups that fail to comply with the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLB Act) could face hefty penalties that include both financial fines and corrective actions mandated by oversight bodies.

These penalties are designed to enforce data protection and privacy standards for consumer financial information.

What financial penalties can startups expect?

Financial penalties for non-compliance with the GLB Act can be severe, potentially reaching up to $100,000 for each violation.

Furthermore, the individual officers and directors of the company might also face personal fines of up to $10,000 per violation. These fines can quickly add up, creating significant financial burdens for startups.

Are there any non-financial consequences?

Beyond financial penalties, startups may also face non-financial consequences for failing to comply with the GLB Act. This includes injunctive relief, which may compel a company to implement certain measures to improve its data protection policies and procedures.

Additionally, reputational damage can occur, leading to lost consumer trust and potential business downturns.
