Burns & Wilcox and ITRC have partnered to help keep your identity safe and protect client data.
What is Identity Theft?
When you are a victim of identity theft someone else has used your information/identity as if it were their own. There are different types of identity theft and there is a different resolution process for each. The ITRC is a 501(c)3 non-profit established to support victims of identity theft in resolving their cases, and to broaden public education and awareness in the understanding of identity theft, data breaches, cyber security, scams/fraud and privacy issues. The ITRC victim assistance guide can be a great place to start in helping you with identity theft. If you aren’t sure about what you need, you can call the ITRC toll-free call center at 888-400-5530 for one-on-one assistance.
How Can I Protect My Business & Client Data?
In the age of data breaches, hacking and malware, our data is our most valuable information. The consequences of a breach can leave your business reputation damaged and a decrease in client trust. There are measures your business can take that will make all the difference between reducing your risk of a breach and leaving the doors wide open to a hacker.
1. The first is to think about the information you are collecting and how it is being secured.
2. Next, do you have a cyber response plan in place?
3. Finally, transparency is the utmost importance in the event your client data is lost.
