Companies are scrambling to deal with the rising cases of identity theft and data breach incidents. Although most companies have good intentions and do their best to secure the personal information of their customers, data breach incidents continue to occur at an alarming rate. The information stolen by insiders or domestic and international hackers is then sold and used by identity thieves to commit fraud and steal billions of dollars from many companies. Knowing that personal data breach incidents are inevitable and personal information can be stolen from any company to defraud any company, businesses are better off having a plan B to prevent stolen information from any source from being used to defraud them. The proposed backup plan is an identity theft prevention program which can be designed, implemented and managed by qualified employees to identify, detect, and respond to identity theft red flags. Having an identity theft prevention program is also a major requirement of the US Federal Red Flags Rule regulation which is overseen by FTC and other agencies.
