ID Experts Launches New Data Breach Services

by Doug Pollack

Tomorrow at the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP) conference in Washington, D.C., we will announce our new ID Experts Data Breach Services.

Developed to resolve the growing consumer dissatisfaction with current breach notification and response methods, these services include breach assessment, notification and communications, monitoring and identity theft recovery components. Tailored to meet the individual needs of the private sector and government agencies, ID Experts is delivering a comprehensive approach to responding to data breach events that alleviates legal liability, manages public perception, and protects and restores individuals’ identities from identity theft.

We have also released a preview of the results from a study that we recently commissioned with the Ponemon Institute, the leading privacy and information management research firm, to be released in April 2008 . The study delves into how consumer victims of corporate breach events are terminating their business relationships because of a lack of responsiveness.

“Our research shows that consumers are growing increasingly dissatisfied with the way they are being treated following a data breach,” said Dr. Larry Ponemon, chairman and founder, Ponemon Institute. “The manner in which breach notification communications are often conducted fails to appropriately convey what the consumer needs to make an informed decision about protecting their personal information and, as such, does not succeed in being the first step in helping to repair a breakdown in trust.”

They may possibly trick you on the phone or by e-mail into giving out your personal information. Identity theft protection
