Equifax Data Breach and Identity Theft Solutions

On September 7, 2017, Equifax announced that 143,000,000 people (nearly half of the US population) had their identities compromised between May and July of this year. Stolen information included names, social security numbers, birthdates, addresses, driver’s license numbers, and credit card numbers. 
As a IT Professional, Certified Small Business and Employee Benefit Specialist, I want to let you know there are steps you can take to educate yourself about the Equifax data breach and subsequent debacle.
  1. Get your FREE credit report from www.annualcreditreport.com. Ensure that your credit information is correct and up-to-date.
  2. Go to the Equifax link below to check your breach status.  It requires you to enter your last name and the last 6 digits of your social security number. (I am guessing you have been impacted by this data breach.) www.equifaxsecurity2017.com/am-i-impacted/.
    1. Equifax is offering its own product called TrustedID as a solution to the most significant identity theft breach our country has ever seen. It is a bare bones breach product that will monitor your credit for free for 1 year.
    2. If someone initially enrolled with TrustedID, they unknowingly gave up their legal rights. Immediate public pressure has forced a change in this policy to better benefit the victim.
  3. Watch this short video where Morgan Wright, US State Department, Senior Anti-Terrorism Advisor, provides tips on what consumers can do to pro-actively protect themselves if they think their personal information was compromised from Equifax’s data breach.
  1. My team is doing an encore LIVE teleconference on Equifax and identity theft solutions on Thursday, September 28, 2017 between 8pm – 9pm EST.  Dial in for a 15-20 minute segment any time during the hour, but stay as long as you’d like.  The phone number is 712-770-4010, 160591#.
These past few weeks have been stressful for many of you, knowing that your personal information will be bought, sold and traded for years to come, as your name, social security number, driver’s license and birthdate are very valuable and they DO NOT EXPIRE! You may have realized that no matter how careful you are with your personal information, it is beyond your ability to protect your identity on your own. THAT IS THE WORLD WE LIVE IN!
But, you do NOT have to go at it alone! Get on the call tomorrow to educate yourself, and check out the identity theft protection plans available [COMPETITIVE COMPARISONS]. You will discover that IDShield is THE best identity theft solution for THE best price.
MARK YOUR CALENDAR!! SET YOUR PHONE ALARM!!

Many of us have a strong desire to connect with others on social media. And, in doing so, we tend to let our guard down when sharing personal information & photos. Over the past couple weeks I have received friend requests on Facebook from people that I am already friends with. After investigating the requests I have found that the profile pages are an exact duplicate of the non hacker and scammer. The identity thieves have FULL access to your personal information, contacts, and pictures of your grand kids or other family members to hack them.
Identity thieves will gain access to your online accounts, including bank & credit card accounts, by combining the seemingly innocent information found on your social media sites with the information available on the dark web.
In MARCH 2017, LegalShield upgraded its IDShield solution to include a SOCIAL MEDIA MONITORING feature for its members.
SOCIAL MEDIA MONITORING allows you to monitor multiple social media accounts & content feeds for privacy and reputational risks. You can set up monitoring for your Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn & Instagram accounts to receive reports and alerts for content items such as image captions, posts, and comments. You will be alerted to privacy risks like the exposure of personally identifying information, including street address, date of birth, or Social Security number. Social Media Monitoring also searches for content that has the potential to create reputational risks, like foul language, drug & alcohol references, or discriminatory terms. When alerted, you will receive step-by-step guidelines to follow so that the detected risks are contained.
Identity Theft is NOT going away!

It's time for the time to change.
Daylight saving time begins overnight -- at 2 a.m. Sunday clocks will move forward one hour as mandated by the Energy Policy Act of 2005.
Some will gripe about losing an hour of sleep, while others are excited about the extra hour of daylight in the afternoons that DST affords.
Daylight saving time (not "savings") has been a contentious issue worldwide since it was first conceived by Benjamin Franklin in 1784.

Here are a few surprising things about the time change and the ripple effects caused by it:
*Railroads helped start more uniform time zones in the U.S., voting in 1883 to adopt a standard time.
*Before railroad time, cities used to set the time themselves, leading to confusion, especially when traveling. At one time there were 100 railroad time zones in the U.S. alone.
*Although the railroads adopted standard time in 1883, it was not made the law of the land in the U.S. until the Act of March 19, 1918, also known as the Standard Time Act.
*Daylight-saving time came and went in the 20th century but was used year-round from 1942 until 1945.
*As of 2007, daylight time begins in the United States on the second Sunday in March and ends on the first Sunday in November.
*According to David Prerau's book "Seize the Daylight," trains always adhere to their published schedules, so when it's time to "fall back" all Amtrak trains that are running on time stop in their tracks and wait an hour before resuming. When it's time to spring forward the trains automatically fall behind schedule at 2 a.m. but just have to do their best to make up the lost time.
*According to National Geographic Nielsen TV ratings during the hours impacted by the change to daylight saving time show large declines during the first week of DST--as much as 10 to 15 percent, even for popular shows.
*A study by Hardee's fast-food chain estimated that extending DST would increase sales by $880 a week per store.
*A 2015 report by the Brookings Institution found that, on the first day of daylight saving time, robbery rates fall by an average of 7 percent.
*Canada experimented with "double daylight saving time" in 1988 and set clocks ahead by two hours at one time in order to capitalize on the long hours of sunlight in the northern latitudes. DDST didn't stick, however.
*Even Antarctica, where there is no daylight in the Southern Hemisphere winter and a stretch of 24-hour daylight in the summer, observes DST at some of its research stations in order to keep the same time as suppliers in Chile or New Zealand.
*As late as 1965 the observation of DST was still not uniform across the U.S. According to National Geographic in Minnesota, St. Paul was on one time, Minneapolis was on a different time, and Duluth was on Wisconsin time. There was even a Minneapolis office building in which the different floors of the building were observing different time zones because they were the offices of different counties.
*In the Northern Hemisphere, daylight has been increasing since the December solstice. Daylight will continue to increase until the summer solstice, which falls on June 20 at 11:24 p.m. CDT.
*Standard time resumes on Sunday Nov. 5, 2017.
