About This Blog

Established in early 2010 in the San Francisco Bay area, the Identity Theft Council (ITC) is a non-profit, grassroots organization that provides identity theft victims with free, ongoing support and identity recovery assistance in their local communities. The Council is creating a nationwide network of local partnerships between law enforcement, the financial industry, and volunteers in local communities to provide hands-on support for victims of identity theft, help law enforcement provide a more coordinated response, and improve identity theft education and awareness community by community, across the country.

The Council was founded by security expert Neal O’Farrell with the support of local law enforcement in the San Francisco Bay area. The Council is supported nationally by Intersections Inc, the Independent Community Bankers of America (ICBA), the Better Business Bureau (BBB), the Online Trust Alliance, Elder Financial Protection Network, and the Identity Theft Assistance Center (ITAC).
