Victim of Identity Theft? Options to restore and prevent becoming a victim
So far in 2017, Identity Theft has affected more than 15.4 million U.S. Consumers with over $16 billion dollars stolen. The quantity of people affected has increased over 43% since 2016, making this concern a top priority of consumers and business alike.
Identity Theft and other instances such a Tax Fraud where personal information is used maliciously are one of the several concerns that make a data breach so worrisome. As restoring one’s identity and proving information was falsely used involves several steps, it’s understandable that protecting this information is at top priority.
Lincoln Archives understands that even with the many ways to help prevent data breaches and unauthorized access, the volume of breaches and intelligence of a breach is increasing daily and it’s not possible to stop every instance. Due to this, Lincoln Archives partnership with Kroll allows for Identity Theft Protection plans to be available to both our clients and on an individual level. This service is used by many employees and in fact, upon initial set-up from one employee, it was discovered the identity of this employee’s child was being maliciously unbeknownst to the emplaoyee. This instance signififies what matters most to hackers is just acquiring the data rather than the data itself. All of Lincoln Archives services have the overall goal of protecting data and these Identity Theft Protection services are just another way to protect the very valuable information of our clients.
