Clarity in Action:
Identity Crimes Defined
At EZShield, we define three forms of identity crimes:
1. Lost/Stolen Personally Identifiable Information (PII)
PII is any information that distinguishes you as an individual, such as your name or Social Security number. Once this information is lost, stolen or exposed in a data breach, you run an increased risk of fraud or identity theft.
2. Payments Fraud
Fraud is the unauthorized access and use of existing accounts. Credit card and employment fraud are two common forms of misuse.
3. Identity theft
Theft occurs when stolen PII is fraudulently used to open new accounts in your name. Perpetrators may open new lines of credit, obtain official documents, or purchase property using your identity.
Data Breaches and Identity Theft
There’s an unsettling trend that adds to cloudy space of identity crimes — data breaches.
Major corporations such as Target, Anthem, Yahoo and The Home Depot have all suffered security lapses resulting in widespread exposure of their customers’ personal and financial information. These breaches serve as the gateway for international financial crime and can plague victims for years to come.
Fighting Identity Crimes acts as the first responder in the wake of a breach. By alerting consumers of large-scale breaches, EZShield customers can react quickly and seek additional assistance from one of our certified Resolution Specialists if needed.
The latest string of data breaches has served as a wake-up call for consumers. More individuals now wish to address these threats head on and are taking serious actions to assure they are being cared for.
If their checking account is compromised, 18.5% of consumers will switch financial institutions.*
