Identity Theft and Fraud
Identity theft is the fastest growing white collar crime in the United States largely due to the growth of online buying and online banking. Identity theft is when someone uses another's name, address, birth date, driver’s license number, social security number, account numbers, etc to make purchases against your account, open up additional accounts, take out loans, or even apply for jobs.
In response to State Board of Higher Education (SBHE) policy 802.7 and the Federal Trade Commission rules implementing the Fair Credit and Accurate Transactions Act of 2003 (FACTA) regarding duties of creditors, UND has adopted a Red Flag Program to assist employees in detecting, identifying, and preventing identify theft.

The North Dakota University System requires that each institution shall develop and implement controls designed to minimize opportunities for theft, fraud, or unlawful or improper use of public resources, including funds, supplies, and property.
