ITRC May Twitter Chat

Each month, the ITRC hosts an informative Twitter chat on a topic relating to the issue of identity theft, but in May, we have decided to do things a little differently. Instead of having a single industry expert or organization serve as our co-host this month, we will be asking our friends, partners, and sponsors to come together to answer the public’s questions related to every aspect of identity theft.  From cybersecurity to shredding to privacy, we will be tweeting best practices, helpful information, and fraud prevention tips that everyone can use.
