Identity Theft &Your Business

Did you know that October was National Cyber Awareness Month? National Cyber Awareness Month was started in 2004 by the Department of Homeland Security in order to raise awareness of the growing dangers of cybercrime–including identity theft.

According to the Federal Trade Commission, identity theft affects millions of American consumers each year. Identify thieves also target businesses in order to fraudulently obtain lines of credit in order to purchase goods that can be sold for cash. The Colorado Secretary of State has put together a convenient pamphlet that provides tips on how you can protect your business and what to do if you believe your business has been the victim of identity theft.

The Secretary of State’s website also has a “Prevention Checklist” as well as an exhaustive Resource List that contains links to where businesses can receive free help and information regarding this growing cybercrime.
