Deborah Buckley from the Department of Banking will share important tips to help you understand the methods of identity theft; take action steps to reduce your risk; recognize signs that you may be a victim; choose your options in recovering from identity theft, including data security breaches; and exercise your consumer rights to shield your credit report from unauthorized use.

Deborah Buckley has been with the Department of Banking since 1998.  She is an Associate Financial Examiner in the Consumer Affairs Unit of the Government Relations and Consumer Affairs Division at the Department of Banking.

This event is free and open to the public. Please register in advance for this program by calling the library at 860-673-6791, using the online registration form, or visiting the Information Services Desk. If you have special needs to attend library programs, contact the library in advance.
