Safe at Home Address Confidentiality Programs (ACPs) have been adopted in many states to protect domestic violence victims’ addresses and other personal information from collection and disclosure. Financial services institutions are taking strides to protect the data of participants in ACPs, but the financial services industry also faces some of the most complex issues with ACP compliance.
Bradley is happy to announce that it has joined the National Association of Address Confidential Programs (NACAP) as a sponsoring member. NACAP was founded by state ACP administrators, and advocates for awareness and education of state ACP programs. Our Cybersecurity and Privacy team has been invited to meet with NACAP leadership later this month, and we’re hoping to connect with our financial services clients to hear about the issues they’re experiencing while implementing and tracking ACP programs.Please join Erin Illman, Rachel LaBruyere, and Leah Campbell to share your thoughts, and to get an update on recent developments plus a forecast for the new year.
- Bradley is the second sponsoring member, and only law firm member, of the National Association of Confidential Address Programs.
- NACAP will be able to provide Bradley, and Bradley’s clients, with clear guidance and insights on Address Confidentiality Programs (ACPs).
- ACPs exist in 43 states, and their reach is only growing.
- There are a handful of states where ACPs apply to private entities and even more states with quasi-private obligations.
- Federal ACP legislation is gaining momentum and may come back up in the new Congress.
- Entities should prioritize creating and implementing a standard consent form for ACP participants.
