EZShield Gets Serious About Business Identity Theft & Cyber Threats for SMBs & Their Employees

Small Business Suite by EZShield

Business identity theft schemes and cybercrimes are targeting Small and Medium-Sized Businesses (SMBs) every day. In fact, the growing crimes against SMBs go well beyond creating fake W-2 forms with Employer Identification Numbers (EINs) to file a fraudulent tax return. Today’s cybercriminals can easily mask their attacks and commit any number of malicious acts from hacking into IT systems to compromising email accounts and network connections, and even spoofing Wi-Fi access points and redirecting traffic.

Essentially, all of the threats large organizations must deal with – including the resources, technology and skills these fraudsters tout – SMBs must also face. But, without the specialized tiger teams that big companies often put together. And, all on a shoestring budget. Continue reading

The U.S. government shutdown that started on December 22, 2018, is now the longest on record and is impacting more than 800,000 federal workers as of the time of this writing. Although the impact is clear for those government employees directly in the crosshairs, the full effect is yet to be realized for U.S. consumers.

Here are two federal agencies whose lack of funding could prove to endanger citizens’ defenses against identity crimes and fraud. Continue reading

Musings and Actionable Insight A Year After the Equifax Breach

The Equifax Mega Breach | You’re Still Not Safe

It’s been a year since the Equifax data breach – one that affected nearly 148 million U.S. consumers in 2017. But even a year’s time doesn’t make the severity and sheer magnitude of this breach any better.

Aside from numbers, the highly-sensitive Personally Identifiable Information (PII) exposed by Equifax only heightened nationwide concern. Names, Social Security numbers, birth dates, and driver’s license numbers were among the millions of data points compromised.
