US: Q&A With Eva Velasquez of the Identity Theft Resource Center: The Red Flags of Child Identity Theft and How to Recover
Huffington Post – October 02, 2017
I recently had the opportunity to talk with Eva Velasquez, president and CEO of the Identity Theft Resource Center (ITRC), about the issue of child identity theft; the ITRC has just released its 2017 Identity Theft: The Aftermath report, which shares insight into the complex issue of identity theft and the difficulties it creates for victims, families and communities, this month. In this discussion, Eva highlighted how and why criminals go after children’s information, the impact of children’s information being compromised and what parents can do to protect their children’s identities and recover from an incident.
