Identity Theft Protection Policy
Help protect your employees and customers from identity theft. This policy from TechRepublic Premium outlines precautions for reducing risk, signs to watch out for and steps to take if you suspect identity theft has occurred.
While such misfortune may not be 100% preventable for everyone who follows these guidelines (since identity theft can still occur through negligence or lack of awareness on the part of the victim), these steps will help educate personnel and reduce the risk of employee or customer data becoming compromised.
From the policy:
Check social media sites you use on a regular basis to ensure no duplicate accounts matching your identity have been created. Report any such accounts as fraudulent to the site administrators and request that these be removed.
Keep an encrypted file containing your account numbers and the phone numbers of all financial organizations with which you do business. This file can be used to quickly address any identity theft scenarios. Securely store account IDs and passwords in a password manager.
The download comprises an 11-page PDF and Word document.
