Identity Theft Prevention Working Group

The online identity theft problem is too big and growing too quickly to be solved by one vendor or one initiative. Liberty Alliance formed a new group, the Identity Theft Prevention Group, with the belief that when the industry works together, the majority of online identity theft issues will be solved faster and on a broader scale.

The group is designed to serve as a hub for the global effort against identity theft and will be attacking issues from multiple perspectives in a collaborative, open, and vendor neutral environment.

It includes a detailed identity theft matrix that explores the various types of identity theft and possible mitigating strategies, as well as an identity theft lifecycle that presents the various stages of the identity theft problem.
