LifeLock has established a three-year collaboration with The FBI Law Enforcement Executive Development Association (FBI-LEEDA) to identify identity theft trends and educate consumers. The initial meeting is scheduled to take place October 16 in Phoenix, and will be attended by local law enforcement CEOs, public safety commissioners and sheriffs from around the US and abroad.
