ICFE eNEWS #16-06 - March 10th 2016

International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP) accepts ICFE's Certified Identity Theft Risk Management Specialist CITRMSŪ XV for CPEs on their Certified Information Privacy Manager (CIPM) and the Certified Information Privacy Technologist (CIPT) Designations

10 March 2016 - One result of the soaring increases in credit and identity theft are new laws, rules and regulations regarding the keeping of consumer information private, massive data breaches and the ever-changing tricks and tactics of the identity thieves. It brings about the immediate need for highly trained identity theft risk management specialists focusing on these new areas of risk including the internet and smart phones.

The all new ICFE Certified Identity Theft Risk Management Specialist - CITRMSŪ XV course curriculum addresses such vital areas as: the nature and forms of identity theft and related fraud; consumer protection laws and related requirements of information keepers; the public dossier and other sources of information such as social media. Identity theft risks and issues for businesses, including information about security laws, related requirements and liabilities, and risk management are included.

The International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP) has accepted the ICFE's new CITRMSŪ XV course for up to 20 continuing education (CE) credits for the IAPP's Certified Information Privacy Manager (CIPM) and the Certified Information Privacy Technologist (CIPT).

The Association for Counseling and Planning Education (AFCPE), the Association of Family Consumer Sciences (AAFCS), and the International Association for Registered Financial Consultants (IARFC) and many other professional organizations also accept the CITRMSŪ XV course for CEs and Professional Development Units (PDUs).

To attain the certification, ICFE's CITRMSŪ XV candidates must successfully complete a rigorous 100 question final exam, 80% or better to pass, designed to thoroughly assess their comprehension of the CITRMSŪ XV Independent Study Guide.

Over 5,000 individuals, including privacy consultants, law enforcement people, lawyers, military counselors, paralegals, financial planners, credit and debt counselors, notaries, and mortgage brokers trained, examined and certified as CITRMSŪ by the ICFE since 2005. All of the current CITRMSŪ certificants will have six months to upgrade to the CITRMSŪ XV

About the ICFE:

The Institute of Consumer Financial Education (ICFE) was founded in 1982 by the late Loren Dunton (creator of the Certified Financial Planner (CFP) designation).  The ICFE is dedicated to helping consumers of all ages to improve their spending, increase savings and use credit more wisely. 
The ICFE is an award winning, nonprofit, consumer education organization that has helped millions of people through its education programs and Resources. It publishes the Do-It-Yourself Credit File correction Guide, which is updated annually. The ICFE has distributed over one million Credit/Debit Card Warning Labels and Credit/Debit Card Sleeves world wide.

The ICFE became an official partner with the Department of Defense/Financial Readiness Campaign in June of 2004.The ICFE was an active partner in the California Student Debt Resource Awareness Project (CASDRAP) which resulted in a new web site: (studentdebthelp.org).  CASDRAP disbanded in 2010, shortly after the web site project was completed.  In 2011 the ICFE assumed the single sponsorship of the (studentdebthelp.org) web site and is now responsible for its content and operation.

The ICFE is also an on-line help for consumers who spend too much.  ICFE's spending help was featured in PARADE Magazine in the Intelligence Report section. The money helps and tips are from the ICFE's Money Instruction Book, our course in personal finance.

Visit the ICFE's other web sites at: www.financial-education-icfe.org and studentdebthelp.org.  Both sites helps consumers and students with mending spending, learning about the proper use of credit, budget and expense guidelines, how to set up and implement a spending-plan and also how to access financial education courses and how to teach children about money.
