According to the Federal Trade Commission, 9.9 million Americans were struck by identity thieves in 2002, costing individuals and businesses $52.6 billion. The Aberdeen Group predicts that by the end of 2005, identity theft will result in a total personal loss of $2 trillion. A DoIT Dialogue, led by Cathy Hubbs, IT security coordinator, will discuss who the thieves are, how they steal identities, and what people can do to protect themselves from becoming a victim.
