Protect Yourself

Your identity is comprised of three types of information: financial, medical, and public documents/data. We refer to this trinity as your identity portfolio.

Identity is an asset—as valuable as cash in hand. And it’s easily compromised through theft or a data breach. You should give the same kind of care to your identity portfolio as you would an investment portfolio. Your identity should be nurtured, managed and properly protected.

Your CyberScout team recommends following these steps to safeguard yourself—starting today.
