Free EDUCAUSE Webcast 10/22/08 on Identity Theft Rules

New federal regulations to address identity theft go into effect November 1, 2008, and are likely to affect colleges and universities in nuanced ways. Compliance will require careful study and collaboration among business officers, human resources, legal counsel, student services, IT, and other affected campus units. The rules require users of consumer reports to develop reasonable policies and procedures to apply when they receive a notice of address discrepancy from a consumer reporting agency. They also require that institutions develop and implement an Identity Theft Prevention Program for combating identity theft in connection with new and existing accounts.

Who is subject to and must comply with the regulations on ID Theft Red Flags and Notices of Address Discrepancy? What business practices at colleges and universities are covered by the rules? What are some of the things that entities subject to the rules must do? What role does IT play in compliance with the rules? What are the penalties for failure to comply? On Wednesday, October 22, from 2-3 p.m. U.S. Eastern Time, EDUCAUSE will host a webcast featuring Naomi Lefkovitz from the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to address many of these questions and more. For details and connection instructions, visit http://connect.educause.edu/term_view/ID+Theft+Red+Flags. This webcast is open to the public at no charge and no registration is required. It will also be archived and accessible to all.

Brought to you by EDUCAUSE, in cooperation with the American Council on Education (ACE), Coalition of Higher Education Assistance Organizations (COHEAO), College and University Professional Association for Human Resources (CUPA-HR), International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP), National Association of College and University Attorneys (NACUA), and the National Association of College and University Business Officers (NACUBO).
