  • Many phishing attacks - which often lead to identity theft - stem from emails designed to appear as if they are from a victim's boss, co-worker, or client.
  • Courts are increasingly ruling against companies that fail to protect their employees' personal data
  • In addition to the lawsuits a company may face from the federal government, cities and states are filing their own suits against companies that they feel don't take employee and customer privacy seriously

Lost Productivity

  • Resolving identity theft can take up to hundreds of hours & 6 months of an employee's life

    • 20% lower sales
    • 17% less productivity
    • 21% lower profitability

    • 70% more employee safety incidents
