he Herndon, Va., credit union is the first credit union to receive the Excellence in Member Protection Award from ITAC, the Identity Theft Assistance Center, a national advocate for ID theft victims. "An important part of our commitment to our members is providing them with the programs and services that improve and protect their financial well-being," said Gerrianne Burks, president/CEO of the $2 billion asset credit union. "ITAC Sentinel provides the essential tools needed to do that. We are confident that our partnership with ITAC, who is known as a leader in identity protection and an advocate for identity theft victims, will strengthen the protection and financial security of our members," she said. ITAC Sentinel is offered in partnership with Intersections Inc., a provider of consumer and corporate identity risk management services and a CUNA Strategic Services alliance provider. "As the incidence of ID theft escalates, few consumers are equipped to protect themselves from this risk. Education and a top-notch ongoing review and analysis of credit transactions and reports such as that provided through ITAC Sentinel are the best defense," said John Franklin, executive vice president/chief operating officer at the Credit Union National Association, in recognizing the success of Northwest FCU on educating its members on the perils of identity theft.
