Protecting Yourself from Identity Theft
Published On March 2nd, 2008

Since identity theft is of concern, it’s important to remember that there are steps you can take to minimize the risk and help protect your privacy and identity.

  • Shred documents containing your personal information before
  • discarding them.
  • Secure your personal information at home and at work.
  • Before disclosing any personal information, make sure you know why it is required and how it will be used.
  • Obtain your credit report from each of the three major credit bureaus once every 6-12 months and review them for accuracy. (You can get a free copy of your credit report each year at www.annualcreditreport.com

Use caution when responding to e-mails requesting personal information. When in doubt, contact the sender of the request through a known, secure channel (phone number on back of credit card or a known website address).
