ID Insight president Adam Elliott was an expert source for an in-depth article on cybercrime and cybersecurity published in the May issue of Delta Sky magazine.
The article, called Proactive Protection, addresses the many cyber threats companies and consumers face, as well as what they should be doing to protect themselves. Among the topics Elliott addresses is synthetic identity fraud, where criminals use legitimate information paired with fake names to open fraudulent new accounts.
“We’re constantly keeping up with the latest threats in hacking secure systems to get private data,” Elliott tells the author. “But the level of data breaches that have already happened is almost to the point where, let’s face it, our data is out there in spades. What we really need to do is work to make sure it isn’t used fraudulently against consumers.”
