Identity Theft Protection
Many employers are offering identity theft protection benefits, as a result of recent breaches, most notably, Equifax and the SEC’s EDGAR corporate filing system. The Federal Trade Commission has advised that “information security should be a priority for every business in America.” And according to a special report, offering Identity Theft protection benefits is among the top 10 Best Practices in HR Management for any business. The reality of a cyber-attack is a serious concern for all business owners since it is now a matter of “when”, not “if”, it will happen to you, your business, and your employees.
A service that protects all forms of your identity—your social security number, bank account numbers, and credit card numbers, as well as your medical records, among other things—is a necessity. A comprehensive service that not only monitors your profile but one that provides services to restore your identity after it is stolen, is strongly recommended.
