Today individuals face increasingly sophisticated online threats. The mismanagement of consumer data by both small and large companies is becoming more prevalent. Companies maintain and transmit enormous amounts of data that is vulnerable to theft. At all levels of government, strict laws require companies to protect this data and disclose any breaches to their consumer’s confidential data. Yet regulations and laws meant to protect citizens do not always keep up with the accelerated evolution of technology.
Data Breaches can have a negative impact a consumer’s credit report. Those who steal consumer data often do so in order to steal the identity of innocent individuals. These thieves rack up credit card debt, file for loans fraudulently, or publish individual’s personal information online for others to harass or further defraud them.
