Identity Theft Task Force Issues Progress Report

Here are the interim recommendations by the President's Identity Theft Task Force on how to fight the national identity theft crisis in the United States (courtesy of the FTC website):

The President’s Identity Theft Task Force has adopted interim recommendations on measures that can be implemented immediately to help address the problem of identity theft, Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales and Federal Trade Commission Chairman Deborah Platt Majoras announced today. The Identity Theft Task Force, which was established by Executive Order of the President on May 10, 2006, and is now comprised of 17 federal agencies and departments, will deliver a final strategic plan to the President in November.

The interim recommendations of the Identity Theft Task Force were announced following a meeting of the Task Force today at the Justice Department.

Perhaps - identity theft - which isn't just a financial problem - is finally getting the focus it deserves.
