What is ITAP?
Identity Threat Assessment and Prediction (ITAP) is a risk assessment tool that increases fundamental understanding of identity theft processes and patterns of criminal behavior. ITAP aggregates data on identity theft to analyze and describe identity vulnerabilities, the value of identity attributes, and their risk of exposure.
The ITAP research program provides insight into the habits and methods of identity thieves. The ITAP model discovers the identity attributes most vulnerable to theft, assesses their importance, and determines the personally identifying information (PII) most frequently targeted by thieves. In doing so, ITAP intends to offer behavioral and cognitive recommendations to thwart future identity theft crimes.
The analytical repository of ITAP offers identity solutions relevant to people, organizations, and devices across multiple domains, including financial services, consumer services, healthcare, education, defense, energy, and government. ITAP seeks to provide an unprecedented level of awareness throughout the identity threat environment. Our goal is to use ITAP to deliver actionable knowledge grounded in analyses of past threats and countermeasures, current threats and solutions, and evidence-driven forecasts.
