Six Actions You Must Take After a Data Breach
March 31, 2014
Hello <>,

When we become aware of a data breach, there are six actions that we must take to reduce our risk of identity theft. Sometimes, we may receive a letter from a company notifying us that our information has been compromised and other times, we may learn of a data breach in the news. Regardless of how we become aware that our personal information is at risk, we find ourselves alone, vulnerable, and unsure of what to do next. The company which had our information lost or stolen might provide a limited identity monitoring service to help us detect potential fraud if we’re lucky, but, for the most part, we are on our own and just another name on the notification list. If the company offers a free service, take advantage of it immediately before the offer expires and click this link now to learn about the six action steps that you must take when you become aware of a data breach.


We have recently posted a video on YouTube about the risk of Identity Obesity and its consequences of identity theft which arises when people mismanage and unnecessarily collect or share their personal information. Please click here to watch the video on YouTube.

Thank You and Be Identity Safe,
