Free Identity Theft Seminar: Theme of Upcoming Global Security Week

If you won’t be in the area, think about attending something similar close to you.  Or, better yet for your organization, consider providing a 1/2- to full day seminar about identity theft at your organization during Global Security Week.  You can invite speakers from your local Infragard, ISACA, ISSA, or other information security professional organization and they can likely find some great speakers for your event. 

Also, if you are in the U.S., check with your state’s Attorney General office and invite him or her to come speak…they are often very willing to speak on the topic; I know the Iowa Attorney General’s office is very good with doing such events.
