(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - College kids pass around a lot of personal information in the first days of the school year.

For identity thieves, those young people are a popular target since many may not have established any credit history yet.

Michael Kaiser of the National Cyber Security Alliance advises students to get a sense of the university's privacy policies and whether they could leave an opening for a breach.

"Any new college students, I say, hey, ask what are you doing with my information? How do you store information? Are you going to take that file and lock it in a cabinet when I leave here? I mean those are the basic things that keep information safe," said Kaiser.

Credit card offers are slightly less prevalent on campuses due to changes in federal law.

But, if filling out applications, students should be mindful to keep the information secure.
