Inspector General: ID Theft Not a Priority at Justice Department

The Inspector General's Office released a new report on the Department of Justice's Efforts to Combat Identity Theft. The report states that identity theft is a growing problem, but the Justice Department's efforts to combat the crime have "faded as priorities." The Inspector General concludes that the Department has failed to develop a coordinated plan to combat identity theft since a 2007 task force report. In 2007, EPIC proposed  a comprehensive strategy to "address the root causes of identity theft: excessive data collection and lax security practices." For more information, see EPIC: Identity Theft.
