I believe lack of understanding is the main security issue with identity theft; therefore, I gave a presentation to my company recently. In it I mentioned how easy it is to steal someone's identity at work. My hope was that employees would fear for their own identity and have a better understanding of why they need to support our security policies. If an employee understands how to protect their identity at work, odds are they will protect a customer's identity from theft. This article highlights some of the points from my presentation and follows up with the actions we are taking to prevent identity theft and breeches of security at work. My goal is that viewers who read this article can learn how to protect their information from identity theft at work and at home. If anyone in the IT field reads this article and doesn't have a security policy in place to deal with identity theft at work, I would hope this article convinces them into protecting their fellow employees identity. As an added bonus, doing these things will increase security at work and eliminate some headaches down the road.
