Secretary of State Charles E. Summers, Jr. Announces Additional Corporate Identity Theft Education Seminar in Bangor

Secretary of State Charlie Summers announced today the addition of a fifth seminar educating Maine’s business community of the risk of corporate identity theft. This seminar will be offered at the Hilton Garden Inn in Bangor on Wednesday, June 20. A complimentary breakfast will be offered beginning at 8:15 a.m. and the seminar will run from 9:00 a.m. to 10 a.m.

The Office of the Secretary of State is working in coordination with the U.S. Secret Service and regional business development organizations to inform Maine businesses about how they can minimize specific identity theft threats to their businesses.
