|IT INFORMATION SECURITY
The Federal Trade
Commission (FTC) estimates that as many as nine million Americans have their
identities stolen each year.
Identity theft (or ID theft) is a serious crime. It occurs when your personal
information is stolen and used without your knowledge to commit fraud or
other crimes. Identity theft can cost you time and money, destroy your credit,
and ruin your good name. In rare cases, victims may even be arrested for
crimes they did not commit. Information Technology has gathered important
information from the FTC to provide this online Identity Theft Education
Kit to the Rockefeller University community.
