Countrywide Provides Cyber Help
Everyone has good reason to be concerned about identification security. Hacking occurs on a routine basis, and financial information is compromised. Thieves are more sophisticated, and their use of the information is more than just setting up bogus accounts. Cyber thieves will sell blocks of information to other parties, and it allows for even greater abuse of information. More than a basic group legal plan is needed to protect people from this activity.
The Extent of the Damage
The personal information which can be hacked and stolen is extensive. It includes the following:
- Income and employee ID numbers;
- Social Security number;
- Credit card numbers as well as debit card and bank account numbers;
- Personal information is taken such as address and phone numbers.
