As Terror Threats Rise - Privacy is now more Important than Ever

   These recent string of cyber-hacking should remind us how important it is to be vigilant when it comes to our personal information, including credit and debit cards.

   While credit card fraud is the most costly result of personal data being misused – an estimated $8.6 billion annually– other types of ID theft can be harder to find and fix. “In reality, identity theft can compromise a lot more than your money,” CEO of LegalShield Jeff Bell said. “We’ve seen how stolen personal information - like a driver’s license number, medical and insurance identification numbers, social security numbers - have led to devastating events such as false arrests, tax fraud and insurance fraud. Even your child’s personal information is at risk.”

   Responding to recent national data breaches which have potentially put millions of people at increased risk of identity theft, LegalShield and Kroll have launched IDShield, the only service providing consumers with direct access to Kroll’s team of Licensed Private Investigators.
