A training course for Identity Theft Prevention is also available in Blackboard and is accessible by faculty and staff.
The purpose of the Program is to detect, prevent and mitigate identity theft in connection with any covered account.
As a best practice and using as a guide the Federal Trade Commission's ("FTC") Red Flags Rule, implementing Section 114 of the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act of 2003, The University of North Carolina at Pembroke ("University") developed and approved this Identity Theft Prevention Policy (Program) on August 7, 2009. The policy is available at http://www.uncp.edu/doit/policies/policy_ch01.html
"Identifying Information" means any name or number that may be used, alone or in conjunction with any other information, to identify a specific person, including, but not limited to:
- telephone number*
- social security number
- date of birth
- government-issued driver’s license or identification number
- alien registration number
- government passport number
- employer or taxpayer identification number
- individual identification number**
- bank or other financial account routing code.
Please refer to the aforementioned policy, or contact the IT Security Office at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have additional questions about what you can do to help prevent data breaches and identity theft.
