09 Sep Data Breach: Things to Do Before/After Your Information Has Been Stolen
By now you may have heard about the data breach at Equifax credit bureau. Below are a few steps you can take to help protect yourself against identity theft.
Lock down your credit – Place a fraud alert or credit freeze on your accounts directly with the Credit Bureaus. This will make obtaining new credit in your name more difficult as it will require extra authorizations before new credit is issued.
Check your account – Make sure your personal information is registered for monitoring and you are actively checking your account.
Keep an eye on your credit report – Look for alerts from us regarding new accounts that have been opened in your name. If there is anything you do not recognize, it is important to take action quickly.
