Identity Theft Resources

There are a number of resources which provide additional information on dealing with identity theft and how to prevent it, including:

  • FTC is the lead federal agency on identity theft.
  • SSA offers a great deal of information on SSNs on our internet site.
  • If your institution is a member of the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers (AACRAO), the Middle States Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers (MSACRAO), or a similar organization explore your group’s resources on the topics of FERPA compliance and protection of SSNs.
