Identity theft

How much is your identity worth?

Did you know that the going rate for an individual identity is $14-18 US dollars? Individual identities are stolen, borrowed, bought and sold everyday underground for criminal activity, property theft and various other exploitations.

An identity is an combination of unique personal information which someone can use to impersonate you to:

  • Log into your internet banking account
  • Order a credit card under your name
  • Access your work files and steal your organisations’ intellectual property
  • Reinvent themselves as you

New threats around identity theft are rampant, from the typical credit card and mail fraud, to the growing amount of spear-phishing (targeted and convincing email attacks).

To combat identity theft credit card companies are starting to insist on improved information security through the introduction of  PCI DSS, a security standard for organisations who store or transmit credit card information.

As a business you need to protect your organisation's employee, partner and client identity information.

We can help your organisation protect against identity theft to:

  • Assess your organisation's risk exposure
  • Determine your organisation's information protection requirements
  • Define and design your organisation's identity management framework
  • Implement a robust and scalable identity management solution
  • Develop an effective user provisioning process
  • Develop customised policies and procedures for maintaining the confidentiality and integrity of all personal information
  • Deliver an intrusion monitoring and incident response strategy
