    • Sept 2014 KXAS/NBC 5
      KXAS/NBC 5 interviewed M.K. Raja, a professor in the Information Systems and Operations Management Department of the UT Arlington College of Business, about a dentist’s office in Arlington that had its computers stolen. Private patient information including social security numbers was on the computers. Raja recommended that anyone who thinks that their personal information has been compromised should immediately contact all three credit bureaus and put an alert on their credit. He also recommended filing an identity theft report on the Federal Trade Commission’s website and with the local police department. “That way if any organization claims that you have bought something or someone has opened an account or something that you didn’t do, you can send them a copy,” Raja said. The story also appeared online at NBCDFW.com.
