EPIC Urges Comprehensive Strategy for ID Theft

With ID theft rapidly increasing in the United States, EPIC Executive Director Marc Rotenberg today urged a Congressional Committee to address the root causes of the problem. In testimony before the House Oversight Committee, Mr. Rotenberg said that the government typically acts only after the crime has occurred and warned that the problem will get worse if current trends continue. EPIC recommended a comprehensive strategy for ID Theft that would include: (1) Establishing privacy safeguards for web 2.0 services; (2) Ensuring privacy protections for outsourcing; (3) Enacting comprehensive privacy legislation; (4) Making privacy protection a focal point of cybersecurity policy; and (5) Developing better techniques for Identity Management.
