Identity theft is a serious area of cybercrime. In simple terms, identity theft, as the term suggests, is committed when a cyber thief impersonates a person’s identity and obtains important personal information such as Social Security Number, health records or debit or credit card details, and opens a financial account or starts spending using the victim’s information. When identity theft happens, people realize that the money in the bank account or credit cards is siphoned off. More often than not, this realization dawns only after the theft is carried out.
A perspective of the seriousness of this issue can be had from these statistics:
With organizations having to deal with an assortment of confidential, finance-related information about their employees, such as payroll and many more; cyber thieves have discovered newer sources to target, becoming smarter and more ingenious in the process. Employers need to keep ahead of these crooks and have to continually keep upgrading their techniques and technologies for detecting and stopping identity thefts.
