About a month ago, I was invited to attend a conference put together by LifeLock Identity Theft Solutions. The conference, which was held last week, really opened my eyes to the growing threat of identity theft. For example:
We all know about the benefits of taking a proactive approach with wellness programs. It is a known fact that employees who participate in wellness programs take 27 more steps per day than employees who do not participate. I’m happy to say that in addition to a few more steps per day, my wellness program also includes a financial component! Enrolling in an identity theft protection program is my preventive “medicine” for my financial security. Sorry unknown attacker – I’m protected!
Identity Theft is taking on a life of its own, and spreading at an astonishing rate. The information shared at the conference re-confirms the need to advise employers/employees about the real risk of identity theft. More importantly, there is an easy and cost effective way to beat the thieves!
The problem is not going away, in fact is gets worse by the day, which is why I am so pleased ISG Advisors is one of the first employee benefit advisory firms in the country to bring LifeLock to employers as a voluntary employee benefit – making it easier for employees to protect their identities.
If you’re not offering identity theft protection as part of your employee benefit program, I hope you will consider it. This is a voluntary benefit that offers some piece of mind – allowing your employees to be more focused and productive while on the job.
