CFPB to Host Symposium on Consumer Access to Financial Records
Posted February 21, 2020 by CUNA Advocacy

The CFPB will host a symposium on Consumer Access to Financial Records and Section 1033 of the Dodd-Frank Act on Wednesday, February 26. Section 1033 addresses consumers’ rights to access information about their financial accounts.    

The event will feature remarks by CFPB Director Kathy Kraninger and consist of three panels of experts. The panels will assess the current landscape of holders of consumer data and the benefits and risks of consumer-authorized data access, market developments in consumer-authorized data access, the future state of the market, and considerations for policymakers on how to ensure consumer data is safeguarded while ensuring that consumers have continual access to their data.  

The symposium is the fourth in a series announced last year to explore consumer protections in today’s dynamic financial services marketplace.
