COSTA MESA, Calif., Oct. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Experian®, the leading global information services company, today announced that Rod Griffin, Experian's director of public education, will be speaking at the Society for Financial Education and Professional Development's Third Annual Financial Literacy Leadership Conference. The conference will take place Oct. 25–26 at the Crystal Gateway Marriott in Arlington, Va.

Griffin will be joined on a panel by other industry experts to discuss "What Every Financial Educator should Know About the Credit Card Act of 2009, Credit Scoring and Financial Reform." The panel will focus on understanding the various components of the Credit Card Responsibility and Disclosure Act passed in 2009 and the Financial Stability Act of 2010, as well as the impact of these laws on the public.

"From a credit reporting standpoint, the primary concerns about the new legislation are the potential unintended consequences and as yet unknown impacts it may have, particularly on young people," said Griffin. "Obtaining credit while in college is crucial to building a positive credit history, which is essential to establishing independence after graduation."
