As Identity Theft Increases, So Should Your Vigilance

According to a recent study identity theft is on the rise—over 1 million more Americans were victims in 2011 than 2010. Investigators have tied the increase at least in part to the uptick to the ubiquitous nature of the internet. Every phone, e-reader, laptop, and tablet now comes internet ready. How can your audience keep their identity safe? An expert from the Pennsylvania Institute of Certified Public Accountants (PICPA) can help your audience keep their personal information out of unsavory hands by explaining what activities should be avoided and what suspicious activity to be on the lookout for.
