In accordance with the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act of 2003 (FACTA), Lake Michigan College (the College) will develop and maintain an Identity Theft Prevention Program (the Program) to establish procedures for and guidelines on detecting, preventing, and mitigating identity theft. It is the intent of the College to comply with all applicable provisions of FACTA.
FACTA is a federal consumer-rights law that amended the Fair Credit Reporting Act of 1970. Its primary purpose is to reduce the risk of identity theft by regulating how consumer account information (such as Social Security numbers) is handled.
All employees are expected to familiarize themselves with and abide by the Program. All employees who process data subject to FACTA will be provided training during employee orientation.
