Center for Identity Management and Information Protection to Release Landmark Study

On Monday (Oct. 22), Utica College's Center for Identify Management and Information Protection (CIMIP) will release the results of a landmark study of closed U.S. Secret Service cases involving identity theft.

The study, which will reveal new findings about identity theft perpetrators, victims, and methods, marks the first time the U.S. Secret Service has allowed review of its closed case files on identity theft and fraud. The research will be of particular value to government, law
enforcement and corporate entities whose mission is to prevent, detect, investigate or prosecute identity theft crimes, says Gary Gordon, executive director of CIMIP and professor of economic crime at Utica College. Information on insider threats, points of compromise, and vulnerabilities will be of specific interest to chief security and chief information officers across many industries, including financial services and retail corporations, Gordon says.

The results will be released at the 18th annual ECI Conference. This year's event, "Identity Management and Information Protection: Research to Action" will be held October 21-23 at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel, Tysons Corner, McLean, Va.
