LifeLock reached out to educate law enforcement personnel and consumers this year, reaching a total of nearly 10,000 people.
LifeLock educated more than 3,500 law enforcement officers and more than 5,500 consumers, sharing educational curriculum about the growing threats of identity theft. The leader in proactive identity theft protection, LifeLock offers its educational initiatives at no cost to either group.
“Our award-winning educational programs are the foundation to creating a national discussion among consumers and law enforcement agencies nationwide,” said Todd Davis, LifeLock chairman and CEO. “Getting front line law enforcement officials to connect across jurisdictions and speak the same ‘language’ regarding how to investigate identity theft crimes can ultimately lead to safer communities.”
Working with the FBI Law Enforcement Executive Development Association, LifeLock will end 2010 with 30 one- and two-day Identity Theft Summits for law enforcement all over the country. The summits bring together LEOs to learn from current investigators the methods of thieves, as well as the best investigative practices.
The program has garnered the company the Communitas Awards Leadership in Community Service and Corporate Social Responsibility. The program was also recognized by the International Business Awards, which presented the LifeLock Corporate Communications Team with the Communications Team of the Year award.
LifeLock also strives to educate consumers on identity theft, empowering them to protect themselves from one of the nation’s fastest-growing crimes. Seminars for consumers were also presented in various areas of the country. Dubbed the LifeLock Speakers Series, the program provided participants with a better understanding of their risks associated with identity theft, as well as current ID theft crime trends and the diverse ways these crimes are committed.
LifeLock has provided consumers with the necessary tools to help consumers prevent ID theft victimization since 2005. The company is focused on educating consumers and working with law enforcement and elected officials to better understand the ever-increasing threat identity theft poses.
