The crime of identity theft has reached epidemic proportions. Each year this non-discriminatory crime claims millions of victims...and the number is growing. So what can individuals and organizations do to protect themselves? This up-to-date and comprehensive guide provides readers with the necessary tools to effectively combat this devastating crime. Readers will learn: what identity theft is, who is at risk, the impact of the Internet and other technology, how theives steal your personal information, what individuals and organizations can do to prevent it and step-by-step instructions for what to do if you become a victim.

"Illuminating, Valuable Resource! Identity theft has gained an increasing amount of attention with the upsurge in incidents that cost the victims thousands of dollars and untold hours to clean up the mess caused by the thieves. This book, written by an independent security consultant specializing in identity theft, presents a wealth of fascinating facts about the crime, its growth, how to prevent it, and what to do if you're a victim.

One of the facts brought out in the book highlights the importance of prevention: the average reporting time-discovery-of the crime is fourteen months after the damage has been done! Consider this little book to be a wake-up call and heed the advice carefully.

The first 91 pages are devoted to an insightful-and sometimes astonishing-report of what identity theft is all about. Readers will gain a broad education and learn about vulnerabilities they'd never even dreamed of! With the problem clearly delineated, May spends the balance of the book providing a comprehensive listing of resources, advice, and tools for prevention and response.

This book should be read carefully by anyone with a credit card, social security number, driver's license, checking account... Get it? Everyone! Employers will benefit from the book, as well, particularly if their employees-or others (explained in the book)-have access to personal information about employees, customers, or even suppliers.

Highly recommended. Content and readability give this book a great return on your investment of the purchase and reading time."
