TEMPE, Ariz., Jan. 16, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LifeLock, Inc., an industry leader in proactive identity theft protection, and the FBI Law Enforcement Executive Development Association (FBI-LEEDA) will provide a free, one-day identity theft summit for local law enforcement officials in Virginia. The award-winning educational summit will be hosted by the Piedmont Regional Crime Prevention Association on January 23.
"LifeLock's longstanding partnership with the FBI Law Enforcement Executive Development Association provides attendees an in-depth, behind the scenes look at the crime. These summits demonstrate the scope of the crime and provide law enforcement with proven investigative techniques," said Todd Davis, LifeLock Chairman and CEO.
Attendees of the summit will be presented with in-depth instruction on the technological resources available to assist in identity theft investigations, as well as hands-on learning with tools used by today's identity thieves, including the use and demonstration of trending technologies and tampering devices.
"Identity theft can often be thought of as a credit card compromise. However, the actual scale of this crime is much larger than that. Criminals can use personal information to commit medical identity theft, IRS tax fraud, employment fraud, criminal identity theft and much more," said Davis.
The summit is open to chiefs, sheriffs, investigative supervisors, fraud unit investigators, patrol officers and community policing personnel. The training features keynote speaker, Justin Feffer, a 24-year law enforcement veteran.
