European Observatory on Identity Theft

In the project’s final year, a principal focus will be continuing to develop the EKSISTENZ website as a virtual community of knowledge sharing. The development of the EKSISTENZ website as a virtual community of knowledge will centre upon the creation of an EKSISTENZ ‘sister website’ entitled European Observatory on Identity Theft and eCrime.

The European Observatory on Identity Theft and eCrime website has been launched chiefly to inform the citizen on methods, procedures and possibilities to recover his/her identity after theft, serve as a policy advisor to MSs, advance a common view for European identity protection through guidelines and assistance, build an identity theft think-tank for Europe and beyond and lead the key actors to found the basis of a long lasting European Observatory on Identity Theft.
