Providing identity monitoring solutions to affected individuals, such as those provided by Equifax, has been noted as a mitigating factor by the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) in prior penalty rulings for data breaches.

Our service can be set up within three business days and includes template communications to help you contact affected customers or employees with the right message.

For end-users we provide support 7 days a week1 by phone, online help and FAQs, with victims of fraud specialists on hand should the individual need them.

Swift access to their credit information will help individuals check if they have already been targeted by fraudsters.

We can also tell consumers if their personal information is found on known fraud sites.
