Each year, millions of Americans have their identities stolen. The list of criminal uses for this stolen information is as endless as the damage done to the victim. Identity thieves may use the victims’ information to steal money from bank accounts, apply for fraudulent credit cards, and even sell the victims information to other criminals. Indeed, identity theft has become the crime of the 21st Century.
To protect the public from identity theft, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) issued the “Red Flags” regulation, which requires organizations to implement an Identity Theft Protection Program to prevent, detect, and mitigate obvious instances (i.e., “red flags”) of identity theft.
Adventist HealthCare’s Identity Theft Protection Program is designed to help Adventist HealthCare employees and physicians detect and report suspected identity theft so any impact to the patient can be mitigated, and process improvements implemented to prevent future occurrences of identity theft.
