Free Identity Theft Webinar Tomorrow

This week's release of a new report on Identity Theft (and strategies for avoiding and combating it) will be accompanied by an online Identity Theft Webinar tomorrow, Thursday, January 31, at 2 pm EST.

This week's release of a new report on Identity Theft (and strategies for avoiding and combating it) will be accompanied by an online Identity Theft Webinar tomorrow, Thursday, January 31, at 2 pm EST.Sponsored by the Identity Theft Prevention and Identity Management Standards Panel (IDSP), the webinar will walk attendees through the group's recommendations for enhancing the security of identity-issuing organizations, strengthening identity credentials and integrity, processes for notification of data breaches and so on.

The report itself will be released Thursday and will be available for download as well as webinar review.

Webinar sign-up information is here.

IDSP was created in 2006 by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and the Better Business Bureau specifically to address ID theft issues.

Should be interesting to see what they've learned over the past year and a half. A quick glance at the description of the two volume report promises a comprehensive look at both the ID theft problem and its causes and also, intriguingly, at "recommendations for areas needing new or updated standards, guidelines, best practices or compliance systems."

The second volume -- both are being released simultaneously -- is described as the group's "complete catalog of existing standards, guidelines, best practices and compliance systems." If that's accurate -- or even close -- this could be one worth reading as well as downloading.
