The Thieves Are Coming…. The Thieves Are Coming….

identity_theftMore than a century ago Paul Revere shouted the warning that is now a part of history forever….“The British Are Coming….The British Are Coming….” And thank goodness people took action and defended themselves and preserved a great nation in the making.

So here is the new warning and proclamation of a fast and furious pending danger….  “The Identity Thieves Are Coming…. The Identity Thieves Are Coming….”  And too many people are not heeding the warnings of this proclamation and face a horrible probability of ID theft that gets stronger every day.

Consider this, in 2011 over 2010 there was a 67% increase in one year in the number of US citizens (more than 36 million) who received data breach notification letters from various companies, associations, and government agencies. These letters were to warn citizens that their private and secure ID information was lost or stolen and could be used against them in a harmful way…financially or otherwise.

Sixty-seven percent (67%) is a HUGE and ominous increase to consider.  It is like filling the ocean beaches with thousands of more sharks and yet everyone keeps going into the water unprotected….because we don’t see the sharks lurking below the surface. Ignoring these statistics and not creating some form of ultimate “safety-net” to be ready when the sharks/thieves attack is like jumping into the shark infested waters and taking your chances.

Now consider this, in 2012 over 2011 there was another increase in data breaches of 48%! This signifies “compounding” data breach statistics over the past two years and justifies someone to get on their horse (or blog) and start screaming some kind of warning to everyone.
