1 Proprietary and Confidential Agenda Risks Businesses Face Today Identity Theft Overview Identity Theft Protection and Data Security Questions & Answers
2 Proprietary and Confidential Risk and The Opportunity Cost With RISK taking there is an opportunity or payback for a sacrifice OR consequences to pay for not taking a risk. In today’s business environment and with identity theft, there is an opportunity cost -- the cost of doing nothing. There is no payback for accepting or allowing the RISK to occur. Consequences for inaction are greater than ever before – not just from a lost revenue perspective but also from a legislative point of view with state and federal regulations setting compliance standards. Risk: to expose oneself to the chance of injury or loss, to venture upon, take or run the chance of an outcome; put oneself in danger or hazard.
3 Proprietary and Confidential Managing Risk Identity theft is ever-evolving and criminals are becoming more sophisticated, scheming ways to infiltrate businesses, find the gaps in security, manipulate the system and discover ways to further deceive consumers. Businesses need to be ahead of the curve, and stay ahead of criminals, to protect their assets including revenue, customer base and employees. Legislation is established as a result of incidents - reacting to discovered threats. However, today there are unrealized threats and areas where your company is unknowingly unprotected. It’s important to be proactive versus reactive when it comes to fraud and identity theft. Manage risk & close the gaps.

18 Proprietary and Confidential Identity Theft Defense Framework Understand environment, criminals, and motives Why would the data you control be desired? How would a criminal conduct transactions with your organization using a stolen identity? Are you vulnerable to internal risks from employees, contractors, and vendors? Understand risk areas What types of transactions are high risk and where would they occur? Are their gaps between systems or organization silos that can be exploited? Install controls to identify and prevent theft and fraud Who do you hire? Who has access? Who conducts transactions – who authorizes, who overrides, and who is responsible? Who monitors and audits? Plan for post-fraud response What constitutes a breach and what defines the severity of breach? Who is notified and how is information conveyed to exposed victims? What victim protection solutions will be extended based on data exposed and severity of breach?
