Synopsis:
This book was designed to help consumers and institutions ward off this ever-growing threat and to react quickly and effectively to recover from this type of crime. It is filled with checklists on who you should notify in case you become a victim and how to recover your identity. As well as, different levels of security on the Internet and what to watch out for, prevention methods for ISPs and methods of testing these prevention techniques. It asks which employees and customers are most at risk and what are your cyber-liabilities if you are a financial institution or employer and answers the questions through deployment of security technologies including biometrics, digital signatures using smart and optical cards, and encryption. Identity theft is one of the fastest growing crimes in the US. This past March, Secret Service agents and Jacksonville County Sheriff's officers arrested a 30-year-old Florida man who authorities allege was trying to sell 60,000 names and personal information of The Prudential Insurance Company of America employees. This is just one of many cases highlighting the extent to which everyone faces the threat of having their identity stolen.

Yet, few publications deal with this topic - leaving most people vulnerable. Worst of all, they don't fully recognize the threat.
