Press-Gazette story examines identity theft, fraud prevention efforts

The Green Bay Press-Gazette on Wednesday (Feb. 6) ran a story that looks at how colleges and universities — including this one — guard against identity theft and fraud in the digital age. The story quotes UW-Green Bay Police Lt. Jeff Gross, along with manager of Network and Infrastructure Services Dave Kieper, both of whom talk about preventing and addressing the issues. The story also talks about a recent on-campus theft case that was thwarted by alert staff members who noticed something seemed amiss with a tuition payment. Similar incidents have occurred at NWTC and elsewhere, the story said — but with constant vigilance, incidents can be prevented and responsible parties caught. Full story.
