Identity Protection Act Training
The Identity Protection Act (Social Security Number Protection) training is provided by General Counsel and administered by Training and Development for all employees including student employees.
The Identity Protection Act (IPA) (5 ILCS 179) became effective June 1, 2010 and was supported by an EIU Internal Governing Policy 133.2 to protect the privacy and rights of the customer in regards to Social Security Numbers and to properly train employees to protect the information.
EIU employees, including student employees, are required to take training as soon as they are hired and yearly thereafter. The type of training varies with the department.
Please visit the Identity Protection Act website for further information or contact General Counsel, 217-581-7249.
