CIMIP of UC Welcomes Newest Stakeholder

Strategic Information Resources Joins Research Collaborative

Written By Christine Leogrande

SIR well known for credit reporting, mortgage reporting, background screening


Utica, NY (11/18/2009)
- Utica College’s Center for Identity Management and Information Protection (CIMIP) welcomes its newest stakeholder as Strategic Information Resources, Inc. (SIR) joins the research collaborative. SIR – headquartered in Springfield, Mass. - is a national provider of credit reporting, mortgage reporting and background screening services established in 1926. 

   SIR joins a growing group of government, business and academic organizations that belong to the consortium. CIMIP is dedicated to the study of identity management, information sharing, data protection and the prevention of identity theft and identity fraud. The stakeholders of CIMIP work together to provide resources, gather subject matter experts, provide access to sensitive data and produce results that will be practically applied to the fields of identity management, information protection and the prevention and control of identity theft and identity fraud.

   Donald Rebovich, Ph.D., executive director of CIMIP, thinks the addition of SIR is a natural fit with the Center. “SIR has been in and around the information management business for a very long time and their team brings a wealth of practical and technological knowledge to the table. They work hard for their clients and regard work ethics, teamwork and commitment to customer service as driving forces in the work they do,” he said. “We are pleased that such a storied company with its vast experience and its dedication to the success of its clients will be sharing the knowledge and insight that has helped make them a successful and focused company.”
