The federal Identity Theft Task Force launched a new Web site at www.idtheft.gov that outlines the Task Force’s Strategic Plan for preventing identity theft, assisting victims of identity theft crimes and prosecuting identity thieves.

The Strategic Plan was developed with input from 17 federal agencies. The Task Force, which was created in May 2006, examined law enforcement’s tools for the prevention, investigation and prosecution of identity theft; surveyed educational efforts by government agencies and the private sector on how individuals and businesses can protect personal data; and determined how the government can better safeguard private data held by it and private businesses. The Web site also lists the actions being taken by several federal agencies to combat identity theft.
