Social networking sites, personal information and general purpose search engines, and your own work, public-use, and home computers provide considerable information on you—your digital footprint.  And even though identity fraud and theft are on the rise (i.e., 505 million data records were breached from 2005-July 2011), many people are not vigilant in protecting their personal and workplace privacy, identification, and good name, even though a lot of free, quality help is available to them.  This session will give you information on who is at risk, the forms of ID theft, and provide a sample of the notable online identity and privacy sites.  Various resources and protection organizations will also be discussed so that you can learn how to detect and protect your own digital footprint.

After Attending This Webinar, Participants Will Be Able To:

·       Analyze ID safety issues at work, home, and on the road

·       Apply safeguards and remove unwanted information

·       Connect to and retrieve additional tools and resources
