IDShield: Enhanced Identity Theft Protection

By CIOReview | Wednesday, June 3, 2015

NEW YORK, N.Y: LegalShield, providers of legal solutions and Kroll, a provider of risk solutions, launch IDShield— a service providing consumers with direct access to Kroll’s team of Licensed Private Investigators. Kroll helps clients make risk management decisions regarding people, assets, operations, and security through a wide range of investigations, cyber security, due diligence and compliance, and data and information management services.

IDShield monitors an enrolled member’s identity, including social security number, credit cards and bank accounts. A person’s name, address, date of birth, driver’s license and passport numbers, email addresses, phone numbers and medical id numbers are also monitored by IDShield.

If a change in a member’s status occurs, the member receives an email update. If a member spots suspicious or fraudulent activity, one can contact a private investigator immediately and begin restoring his or her identity to its pre-theft status. Daily updates to online dashboard monitoring enable members to see right away if there are changes that could indicate a potential ID theft.

Jeff Bell, CEO of LegalShield says “In reality, identity theft can compromise a lot more than your money,” He adds,  “We’ve seen how stolen personal information - like a driver’s license number, medical and insurance identification numbers, social security numbers - have led to devastating events such as false arrests, tax fraud and insurance fraud. Even your child’s personal information is at risk.”
