Identity Theft 911 Chief Executive Officer Receives Communitas Award for Excellence in Corporate Social Responsibility

(PRWEB) January 11, 2012

Identity Theft 911, the nations premier identity management and data risk management services provider, today announced that chief executive officer, Matt Cullina, has been named winner of a Communitas award for his work in helping to protect foster teens from becoming victims of identity theft. Cullina is fully entrenched in foster youth identity theft issues through his professional experience with a leading provider of identity management services, as well as his personal experience as a foster parent and adoptive parent. An ongoing effort among subject matter experts at Identity Theft 911, the win demonstrates the companys commitment to working together to create an impactful and rewarding philanthropy program.

Communitas Awards recognize exceptional businesses, organizations and individuals for excellence in community service and corporate social responsibility. The Award is an international effort to recognize the spirit of communitas people helping people. Communitas winners generously give of themselves and their resources, and are changing the way they do business to benefit their communities.

Matt and his team exemplify the true meaning of the Communitas Award; they unselfishly give of themselves and they are forever-changing their surrounding community, said Ed Dalheim, executive director, Communitas Awards. Matts involvement and passion for protecting and helping foster youth is shown through his teams commitment to foster youth issues and demonstrated through Identity Theft 911s pledge to corporate social responsibility.

Cullina has been an active contributor on the legislative front by working with U.S. Representative Jim Langevin of Rhode Island on a bill to protect foster youth from financial abuse. The bill was signed into law on October 11, 2011, and contains provisions that shield foster youth from identity theft, as well as provide resolution and support services should identity theft occur. On July 11, Cullina donated his time to serve as a panelist at the FTC forum Stolen Futures for child identity theft, which highlighted issues in the foster care system.

Matt has been a tremendous partner in efforts to give foster youth the opportunities they deserve, providing invaluable leadership to help address the unique challenges faced by an underserved community, said Langevin. This recognition for corporate social responsibility is certainly well-earned.

As one of Cullinas main efforts, Identity Theft 911 united with First Star, a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of America’s abused and neglected children. First Star Founder Peter Samuelson and Cullina delivered a series of educational seminars to ninth grade foster children in Los Angeles County in a program called the First Star UCLA Bruin Academy. Cullinas team of fraud specialists donated their time and training during the five week course. Identity Theft 911 and First Star will replicate this academy at universities and colleges throughout the country in 2012.

We are in a unique position to create a positive impact on the lives of foster youth, especially in helping them achieve financial stability and start with a clean identity profile, said Matt Cullina. It is tremendously rewarding to have my teams efforts recognized by the Communitas Awards committee.
