The LifeLock Speakers Series program provides attendees with a better understanding of the various risks associated with identity theft, current trends of the crime, and the diverse ways identity theft can happen. In 2010, LifeLock executed more than 100 Speakers Series events reaching more than 5,300 consumers across the United States

"This program has positioned us to increase our educational efforts with law enforcement and to further strengthen our educational conversations with elected officials around the nation."

A 2011 report published by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) shows that identity theft has topped the list of consumer complaints for the 11th consecutive year, according to the agency's annual Consumer Sentinel Network report.
