If you’re covered by the Rule, your program must:
1. Identify the kinds of red flags that are relevant to your practice;
2. Explain your process for detecting them;
3. Describe how you’ll respond to red flags to prevent and mitigate identity theft; and
4. Spell out how you’ll keep your program current.
