The Bible says, “Thou shalt not steal.” Thieves in our days are inventing new ways to violate this command to enrich themselves through “identity theft.” Recently hacker(s) violated the security of Equifax, a consumer credit reporting agency. The Pinkston Group observes, “ million. That’s how many American consumers may have experienced a compromise of their sensitive information. That’s not just their emails: it’s their SSN, salary histories, driver’s licenses, or more.
And it’s not just Americans. As many as 700,000 UK consumers may have also been affected.” Cyber security authority Tom Kelly, CEO of ID Experts, wrote an article for The Hill on the Equifax breach and what it means for the rest of us. Tom Kelly joins Jerry Newcombe on Vocal Point to discuss identity theft and why it matters to all of us. www.myidcare.com
