Protecting Job Seekers from Identity Theft
March/April 2006 (vol. 10 no. 2)
pp. 74-78
Latanya Sweeney, Carnegie Mellon University
In search of a job after graduating from college, Meg Kemp posts her resume online. Norton Steuben, a retired law professor, hasn't looked for employment in more than 35 years and rarely uses the Internet, yet his law school maintains his curriculum vita online. Although such activity might seem innocuous, information in both these online resumes initially put Meg and Norton in danger of becoming identity-theft victims. Fortunately, they received some unexpected protection in the form of a computer program called Identity Angel, which this article describes in more detail.
