Partnership provides CyberScout LifeStages® Identity Management Services to one of the nation’s most vulnerable populations for identity theft
In a move to help protect current and former military members from the threat of identity theft, JobPath, the fastest growing job employment and mentorship site for veterans, today announced its partnership with CyberScout™, the nation’s premier identity management and data risk management services provider. JobPath has signed on to offer CyberScout LifeStages® Identity Management Services to all of its veteran users, a population plagued by identity theft.
For military consumers, identity theft was the number one complaint category in the 2015 FTC Consumer Sentinel, accounting for more than 30 percent of the total military complaints (98,669). Military personnel are affected by identity theft in different ways – their background can be tarnished with fraudulent information and criminal activity causing revocation or denial of important clearances. And, service members are especially afflicted by identity theft when serving abroad or traveling through different bases.
CyberScout LifeStages Identity Management Services provide current and former military members with access to proactive guidance and resolution support from award-winning fraud specialists. More than just detection and reactive monitoring, the services provide identity education, advocacy and guidance 24/7. From a lost wallet to stolen documents, to assistance with social media privacy settings, members have access to a high-touch concierge service to help manage their identities throughout life.
“CyberScout is a leader in providing cutting-edge services to help consumers protect their identities, something that all Americans should have in the digital age where sensitive information can be stolen from you in an instant,” said Jack Fanous, CEO of JobPath. “We are excited to partner with them because of their commitment in protecting our service members from emerging identity concerns – like medical, financial, tax-related, and even child identity theft.”
“I commend JobPath for showing its commitment by improving the member experience with additional programs to keep their members’ identities safe,” said Matt Cullina, CEO of CyberScout. “When thieves are successful at infiltrating the identities of our valuable service men and women, the last thing they need while readjusting to civilian life is dealing with time-consuming and often financially burdensome identity theft issues. Through our proactive support and resolution services, JobPath is offering peace of mind and protection to our country’s best assets.”
