Planning for the Future: A Conference About Identity Theft
Constitution Center, 400 7th Street SW, Washington, D.C.
May 24, 2017
Join the Federal Trade Commission for an all-day conference taking a comprehensive look at how identity theft has evolved over the last decade and what we can do to address this challenge in the future.

The unauthorized disclosure of personal information can result in identity theft and other frauds. Data breaches, lost equipment, and insiders have made sensitive consumer information available for identity thieves to use in a variety of ways. Because consumers often reuse their usernames and passwords, identity thieves with access to this information may have access to additional consumer accounts. Identity thieves are using the information they obtain to perpetrate fraud against consumers, businesses and the government; obtain employment and medical care; and hide from law enforcement.

Identity theft can have ramifications beyond financial harm. For example, consumers may be denied access to crucial services or medical care. Identity theft can also pose a threat to public safety, particularly when used to create fraudulent identity documents that facilitate criminal activity or enable individuals to hide from law enforcement.

The conference will gather input from academics, business and industry representatives, government experts and consumer advocates. We’ll look at the current state of identity theft, examine potential future challenges and discuss how to address these issues. 

The event is free and open to the public. The conference will also be available online via webcast. Learn more and register here
