When identity theft strikes, the impact on its victims can be devastating. A survey conducted for CyberScout by the Identity Theft Resource Center, shows that nearly half of consumers don’t know where to turn after a data breach that makes them vulnerable to cybercrime. Nor do they know whom to trust. Fortunately, millions of people have access to CyberScout’s resolution services team as a service through their insurer, bank or employer.

“We are proud of the award-winning CyberScout teams and services recognized this year by these ISPG awards,” says CyberScout’s acting CEO Bill Tait. "These awards represent an amazing achievement for the CyberScout organization and a testament to the work our team does every day."
