Industry Expert Educates on Threats Posed by Identity Theft
“Identity theft is more than credit card fraud. Understanding the threat is the first step in protecting yourself from it,” says Yurek. An expert on identity crime, the credit industry, and consumer advocacy in action, Yurek’s latest interview will appear on the LIFETIME’s “The Balancing Act” on December 3rd and December 15th. On the show, Yurek discusses how identity theft can affect medical records, taxes, and even pin a criminal record on an innocent, unaware victim.
Many services in the growing field of identity theft protection simply re-package consumer credit reports, and launch huge marketing campaigns to assure people that they will be protected, Yurek explains. Education about the scope of identity theft crimes leads consumers to the natural question of how to best guard against multiple threats.
Yurek’s company, ID Watchdog, is a member of the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP), and is sponsoring an independent study on the effects of identity theft. Involvement in consumer advocacy groups and legislative bodies is part of ID Watchdog’s proactive approach to helping to set industry standards for identity theft protection services.
Hosted by Dr. Wendy Walsh and Danielle Knox, The Balancing Act airs Monday through Friday on LIFETIME at 7:00 am. The show aims to empower women who are seeking personal and professional growth while managing a career, family and home.
