New Government Concerns with Identity Theft

NCC-AIIM Monthly Meeting, Thursday, May 11, 2006

Speaker: James E. Kasprzak, Ph.D., Professor, National Defense University

Identity theft is a significant problem in our technological society and a concern to government information managers. There were over 1 million cases a year in the United States last year in a "perfect storm" of technological change, citizen perceptions, and criminal activity. Actions that can lead to identity theft include unauthorized access to social security numbers, drivers' licenses, credit card numbers, credit reports, passport numbers, birth certificates, and resumes -– most of which are found in government files. The government information environment used to be compartmentalized with "gatekeepers," but today, with remote access and software insecurities, electronic government information is valuable and easier to duplicate and transmit. The electronic world offers new challenges to government information managers at all levels. Dr. Kasprzak will talk about citizen fears, legislative initiatives, policy approaches, and technical solutions to guard against identity theft. You will leave with new information that will serve you both in your business work and in your personal life.

I saw him speak at the NCC AIIM Educational Seminar, this is not to be missed.
