PRIVACY: The OCC is expected to issue guidance this month on how to preserve customers' privacy. The guidance, which will not be legally binding, will suggest how to communicate privacy policies on bank Web sites and how to comply with disclosure requirements of the Fair Credit Reporting Act.
RECEIVERSHIPS: The FDIC is expected in the next several months to modify its receivership policies. The agency would establish uniform rules for interest payments stemming from the resolution of failed banks and thrifts. In a separate rule, it would prohibit people who helped cause the failure of a bank or thrift from buying that institution's assets.
