What You Need to Know Before Choosing an Identity Protection Provider

Choosing an Identity Protection Provider

In the first six months of 2016, the number of U.S. data breaches soared to over 630 — a rate that puts breaches on pace to overtake last year’s count. Data breaches alone in 2015 resulted in over 169 million stolen records. This impact leads to rampant fraud and identity theft and leaves millions of consumers in dire need of help. That’s where the right identity protection provider comes into play. 

An identity protection provider shouldn’t just offer a speedy solution, but one that fits the particular needs of victims. The ever growing problem of information exposure calls for services that deliver a comprehensive approach to resolve identity crime threats.

To help organizations determine how to meet those demands, the Consumer Federation of America (CFA) and its Identity Theft Service Best Practices Working Group have developed a valuable checklist that helps organizations uncover issues that could stem from a data breach incident. Following these guidelines can help maintain best practices and assist you in choosing the best identity protection provider for your specific needs.

Ready to discover the best identity protection provider so that you can secure the data of your consumer and small business customers? Read the CFA press release “Rising Number of Data Breaches Increases Threat of Identity Fraud” for critical identity protection insight.
