Identity Fraud

Published: July 2014

Every 3 seconds someone's identity is stolen. When it happens to you (and odds are it will at some point in your life) it will, on average, cost your banks and credit card companies almost $5000 in losses and will cost you hundreds… yes HUNDREDS… of hours to fix the damage. We'd like to say it's getting better and we see less of this on the horizon but the trend has, unfortunately, not turned around yet. There are still many steps that credit card companies and other organizations need to take before we believe this trend will start lessening. Until that happens we've assembled a list of simple things you can do and encourage you to review and utilize these steps to help protect you and your family from the dramatic effect of identity theft.

Imagine door locks you can control from your smart phone or "smart meters" that the power company reads from their office without the need to send meter readers into everyone’s back yard. We've prepared a new Inforgraphic that provides a beginning primer about what the Internet of Things is and how it works.
