FACTA: Fair and Accurate Credit Transaction Act of 2005

FACTA requires the destruction of all discarded personal information on or derived from credit reports.  This process can be completed through the execution of in-house secure document destruction policies or by partnering with a company that specializes in secure document shredding. 

Penalties for violating FACTA rules include actual damages resulting from the violation, up to $1,000 of statutory damages, punitive damages per violation, and up to $3,500 attorneys' fees and civil penalties.  Punitive damages awarded include no cap on class action damages.

Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002
