Identity theft is a crime that 20 years ago was not on the radar for many businesses or individuals.  Today, with the global economy and the prevalence of internet activity, it is one of the most recognized crimes in the U.S. 

Identity theft is considered the use of one person’s identity or personally identifying information by another person without his/her permission. Identity theft can be committed against individuals as well as organizations.

Identity theft has become a major problem internationally.  In 2006, President Bush issued an Executive Order which established the Identity Theft Task Force. Seventeen federal agencies and departments were appointed to create a national strategy to combat identity theft. This course focuses specifically on Business Identity Theft and processes companies can use to protect their information.

It's the first course I attended that talked about business identity theft. All my other courses were concerned only with individual identity theft so I'm glad to have my eyes opened by this course.
