The Truth About Identity Protection Webinar

Back in October of last year, news broke that as yet unknown hacker stole some 3.6 million Social Security numbers and credit card information from South Carolina Department of Revenue data center.  South Carolina tax payers back to 1997 may be at risk for loss of personal information.  What does this mean exactly?  The State Library will help explain via webinar:

The South Carolina State Library has partnered with the South Carolina Department of Revenue and the South Carolina Department of Consumer Affairs to provide the public with information on how to minimize the possibility of identity theft. The free webinar, The Truth About Identity Protection, will address the issues of security breaches, credit reports, and enrolling in credit monitoring for South Carolinians.  Staff members from these state agencies will provide detailed information and resources and also be available to answer questions during this online session.

The State Library encourages libraries, companies, and organizations to offer sessions to your staff members or the public by registering and showing the webinar in a meeting room or computer lab.  Individuals can also participate from home via the Internet.  To register, visit the SC State Library’s calendar of events or select from dates below.
