NASS to Host National Forum on Business Identity Theft

WASHINGTON, DC – The National Association of Secretaries of State (NASS) will host a first-of-its-kind forum to protect businesses from identity theft on October 16-18 in Atlanta, Georgia.

WHO:

• Secretary of State members of the NASS Business Identity Theft Task Force and state business division directors, representing approximately 20 states

A full agenda is available online at www.nass.org.
