FAA Takes Aim At Identity Theft

Will Provide All Employees With Identity Theft Protection

The FAA has contracted with a company called Identity Force to provide all employees with identity theft protection services. The FAA says the contract is part of the agency’s continued response to a breach in February 2009 that exposed the personal information of more than 45,000 employees and retirees. The terms of the contract were not disclosed.

The new Identity Force contract replaces previous identity protection services offered last year to employees and offers significant new features for a period of 12 months.

  • Employees may sign up for full identity monitoring that will track their credit reports and other identity documents that could be altered.
  • Identity restoration services will be offered under the contract to any employee who has his or her identity information stolen or otherwise adversely affected. A certified professional provided by Identity Force will work on the employee's behalf with creditors, insurance companies, banks, courts, law enforcement agencies and other parties to restore an employee's identity.
  • FAA employees will receive training and awareness information later this year on how to better protect the personally identifiable information of agency staffers, contractors and customers.

“The FAA is the first government agency, to my knowledge, to offer this service to all its employees because we feel it is the right thing to do,” said FAA Administrator Randy Babbitt. The agency will also continue to offer protection to individuals affected by the breach who no longer work at the FAA.

“Identity Force is proud to be working with the FAA, and we applaud the agency’s leadership team for implementing strategic solutions, including training, as part of its ongoing efforts to eliminate the threat of data breaches,” said Identity Force CEO Steven Bearak.

Identity Force is a GSA-approved Federal Government Contractor (#GS-23F-0125S) and has been awarded the GSA’s Credit Monitoring Blanket Purchase Agreement.
