NITVAN is a network of coalitions across the country. Each coalition is engaged in creating, enhancing, and delivering identity theft and cyber-crime victim assistance training and outreach through collaboration and best practices to improve the ability of coalition members to provide direct victim assistance services. The overall goal of every member is to expand victim service programs to better address the rights and needs of victims of identity theft and cyber-crime.
While NITVAN values the collaborative model of forming an identity theft and cyber-crime coalition, NITVAN recognizes that not all agencies currently have the capacity to lead regional or statewide collaborative efforts. These agencies may be interested, however, in the benefits of joining a coalition to receive support in their individual efforts of better serving identity theft and cyber-crime victims in their communities.
