Demartek Publishes Updated Identity Theft Prevention Tips

ARVADA, CO--(Marketwire - December 16, 2009) - Demartek announces its updated Identity Theft Prevention Tips and Commentary Report for December 2009.

Identity theft, also known as "ID theft" and "identity fraud," is a widespread and fast-growing crime. Although potentially anybody can be targeted, there are a number of things that can be done to reduce the risk of becoming an identity theft victim. The recent well-publicized security breaches, ruin of financial reputations and even mistaken arrests of victims have triggered calls to action by individuals, businesses and government.

The Demartek Identity Theft Prevention report lists suggestions for individuals and organizations to help reduce the risk of identity theft. The areas covered include the handling of paper documents, telephone-related issues, computer-related issues, credit freezes, and the Identity Theft Passport programs. This report also provides references from government agencies for information and assistance and discusses some current and proposed laws. Information specific to the USA and Canada is included.

"Although some government agencies pass laws to penalize criminals and assist victims, and some businesses establish procedures to reduce the potential for identity theft, individuals can and should take action to prevent identity theft," said Dennis Martin, Demartek President. "Individuals also bear the brunt of the burden when it comes to the effort and trauma of recovering from identity theft."

Dennis Martin, Demartek President, is available to speak on this topic to civic groups and other interested parties. Call the Demartek office at (303) 940-7575 to make arrangements. The Demartek Identity Theft Prevention report is available online free of charge at
