IDENTITY THEFT PROTECTION: AN ESSENTIAL EMPLOYEE BENEFIT
LifeLock helps safeguard against identity theft, as well as provide assistance to those who have become victims. Identity theft occurs when the perpetrator appropriates the victim’s personal and financial information for their own criminal gain and the consequences can be devastating.
As the digital economy has grown, identity theft has become a real concern. Although the rise of mobile, social media savvy employees and customers has benefited business in many ways, greater reliance on these technologies has also opened the door to many new and previously unheard of threats. While low-tech methods such as wallet theft and dumpster diving can be used to steal personal information, hi-tech techniques can have a greater impact. Ploys like phishing emails, keyboard skimming and various types of malware can be subtle and hard to defend against.
With more than 5 million members, LifeLock is the #1 most recognized brand in identity theft protection.1 Having LifeLock as an employee benefit can help reduce employee time-off and distractions while mitigating an organization’s risk in the case of an employee data breach. It does this through a combination of state-of-the-art monitoring, notification and remediation services.
