The Center for Applied Identity Management Research (CAIMR) released it’s first annual workshop report this month. In the report, CAIMR determined that the United States has failed to stay ahead of the identity theft curve and the battle against identity crimes is currently being lost. The report outlines an aggressive research agenda to identify and develop solutions to mitigate an expanding list of identity threats.
Launched in October 2008, CAIMR is a non-profit corporation comprised of thought leaders from government, corporate and academic organizations who share a common interest in the multi-faceted aspects and critical challenges of identity management. CAIMRs primary mission is to study identity issues impacting commerce, government, and national security, their social implications, and the processes, technologies and polices designed to deal with them. Most importantly, its applied research emphasis is focused on discovering real world solutions. More info at http://caimr.indiana.edu.
