From the Inside Flap:

PREVENTING IDENTITY THEFT IN YOUR BUSINESS

How to Protect Your Business, Customers, and Employees

Companies that engage in financial transactions are bound by law to establish and enforce information security programs to prevent identity theft. The shortcoming of current laws is that they specifically address information technology (IT) security—the security of computers and networks. But computers do not steal identities. People do. Recent studies indicate that at least fifty percent or more of identity thefts are committed inside the workplace by a few dishonest employees who steal the social security number, credit card numbers, banking information, or other numbers from their coworkers and customers.

Preventing Identity Theft in Your Business is the first book to address identity fraud from the business perspective. It helps employee-manager teams develop a set of security standards using step-by-step instructions written in plain, easy-to-understand language. Identity theft expert Judith Collins offers practical guidance on how to spot identity theft, as well as how to prevent it from ever occurring. Using techniques culled from industrial and organizational psychology, the management sciences, and the field of criminal justice, the methods covered here are inexpensive, comprehensive, and universally applicable to all businesses, regardless of size, type, or geographic location.

Written to help companies build effective corporate policies that protect the identities of their employees and customers without impacting budgets and business operations, Preventing Identity Theft in Your Business explores:

  • What is an "identity"?
  • The legal requirements for business
  • How to tighten your business borders
  • How to recruit your employees for security
  • Socializing newcomers to the honest company culture
  • The e-business Web site
  • E-commerce best practices for customers
  • HIPAA: Security for healthcare companies
  • The security standard checklist
  • The checklist of team prerequisites
  • The security focus-group interview
  • One company's short- and long-term strategic plan

Any company can become compliant with all current and upcoming laws in six months or less with Preventing Identity Theft in Your Business.

From the Back Cover:

IDENTITY THEFT IN YOUR BUSINESS STOPS HERE

"This book strongly makes the case that identity theft is a very serious workplace problem today. It provides valuable guidance to business and industry HR practitioners on how to address the identity theft problem using I/O psychology. Beyond personnel selection, this book also describes the role of socialization and training programs for new employees, appraisal and feedback related to adherence to security procedures, and risk assessment of work processes in reducing identify theft in organizations. The writing is clear, easy to follow, and flows well. Highly recommended."
–Frank L. Schmidt, Distinguished Professor, Tippie College of Business, University of Iowa

Identified by the FBI as the top crime of the twenty-first century, identity theft is most commonly committed inside the workplace, and the victims are always a company's employees and customers. Executives, managers, and consultants can now use the latest tools and know-how for combating identity theft with the help of Preventing Identity Theft in Your Business.

Preventing Identity Theft in Your Business presents a comprehensive, four-factor model for implementing an effective information security plan and provides step-by-step guidance on employee selection and training. Brimming with exercises to make each approach easy to implement, this breakthrough guide explores how to:

  • Secure personal identification information across four fronts: personnel, processes, proprietary information, and virtual property, such as an e-business Web site
  • Implement a comprehensive security model, including Web site risk assessment
  • Screen and test employees who have access to sensitive information

Rich with real-world case studies illustrating how identity theft is committed and prevented, Preventing Identity Theft in Your Business clearly demonstrates how you and your employees can foster an honest work culture in your workplace.
