Blast from the past: DMV fraud

As the REAL ID act meets reality, recall a previous report on DMV fraud and lax security. If you think you have problems budgeting for security in your company, imagine being handed an unfunded mandate from the federal government. Do you think current problems will magically go away?

Concerns

CDT (http://www.cdt.org/) has issued a report entitled "Unlicensed
Fraud"
(http://www.cdt.org/privacy/20040200dmv.pdf) documenting rampant
internal fraud and lax security at state motor vehicle administration
offices across the country placing the reliability of all driver's
license at risk. While heavy public attention has been placed on new
national standards and new technologies for driver's licenses, studying
local news reports from throughout 2003 CDT finds that basic management
processes to stop bribery and theft are lacking. In the report, CDT
offers policy recommendations to address this dire issue. February 2,
