MONTREAL, Jan. 8, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- IDT911, a leader in identity management and data risk management services, is proud to announce a new tool to assess the risk of identity theft: the ID RiskCompass™. The educational tool guides consumers into making smarter choices in managing their identity.
ID RiskCompass is an innovative online tool exclusively available to IDT911 partners as part of the company's enhancement to its LifeStages® Identity Management Services. The interactive tool provides a value-added benefit to partners by helping to educate their policyholders, members or customers about behaviors that may put their sensitive information at risk. By answering a few simple questions, consumers can assess their risk by receiving a 1 to 100 identity theft score. Based on their risk score, they'll receive guidance and tips on ways to proactively reduce their risk for identity theft.
"We're excited to offer our partners this online risk assessment and educational tool to help them differentiate their organizations," said Matt Cullina, Chief Executive Officer of IDT911.
"Identity theft affects much more than just financial information; thieves can wreak havoc on tax documents, employment documents, social media accounts and more, and many consumers don't realize the information they're divulging every day. By making ID RiskCompass available to consumers, partners help to bridge the awareness gap and help consumers understand better identity management practices."
