The testimony prompted editorials in USA Today, and the Washington Post.
Perhaps the best line, from Thomas Greene, is:
FTC Chairwoman Deborah Platt Majoras advised the Committee to avoid over-notification. “Consumers will become numb to notices,” she said.
That’s how bad it is, huh? We’ll become numb if we knew the truth?
The Identity Theft Resource Center (ITRC) announced today that ChoicePoint is partnering with the ITRC to combat identity theft via a four-year funding commitment to expand ITRC’s current victim assistance and consumer education program.
The ChoicePoint Foundation is paying $1 Million over 4 years. Congrats to the ITRC. I’ve mentioned a profile of the Foleys, who run the center.
