Title: Recommendations for a comprehensive identity theft victimization survey framework and information technology prevention strategies
Author: Berg, Sara
Abstract: While steps have been undertaken in the last five years to better understand the problem of identity theft, there has been little research done in the areas of high tech crime victim profiling and prevention. Most studies focus on victim demographics without examining ways in which the victimization may have been facilitated technologically. Attempts to look at precipitating behaviors in the context of victimization are limited. As such, a weak empirical base exists on which to generate additional research and potential solutions to identity theft victimization. This thesis bridges previous identity theft research with other empirical studies in order to offer recommendations for a comprehensive survey framework in which to study identity theft victimization and for information technology strategies to enhance prevention efforts.
