Identity theft prevention
CIFAS, the UK’s Fraud Prevention Service, records on average 75,000-80,000 cases of identity theft each year in the UK.
Personal credit information is one of the main targets for fraudsters looking to benefit from this type of fraud, with traditional paper-based sources being significantly more susceptible to theft than alternative electronic channels. But whilst legislation and privacy policies are designed to both protect companies and keep criminals in check, prevention is always the preferred option.
Identity theft is now considered a worldwide concern, and one which can affect all areas of your business, from your ability to obtain credit to your corporate reputation.
