Medical ID theft — The World Privacy Forum has released a new map that reveals the geography of medical identity theft. This is the first map of its kind, and is based on the Federal Trade Commission Consumer Sentinel data. The map is interactive, and gives details on the cities where medical identity theft occurred over the course of a year. The World Privacy Forum published the first report on medical identity theft in 2006, coining the term in the report and bringing the crime to public attention. WPF continues to actively research this important privacy issue.
