Aligned with our mission to provide IT security services, we recently signed up for a solution that will give us and our staff some peace of mind in light of the recent data breaches and scams — an Identity Monitoring Service.

The service I’m talking about is called “Spotlight ID Pro.” Spotlight ID Pro is a comprehensive Personal Identity Monitoring service to protect organizations and their employees.

Here are some of the highlights of this service:

  • Notifies an employee when their personal or corporate email address and password are compromised and exposed on the Dark Web for malicious purposes.
  • Monitors non-credit loans, including payday and quick-cash loans that do not require a Social Security number or credit inquiry.
  • Up to $1 million to apply to most identity restoration-associated fees, with $0 deductible.
  • Monitors and notifies when fraudulent names, aliases and addresses become associated with your Social Security Number.

That’s not all! Employers can purchase this service 50% off and it’s also tax deductible. We also love that if something happens, say one of our employee’s credit card gets stolen, the service acts on their behalf to take all the necessary steps towards the resolution. In this case, contact the bank, cancel the stolen credit card, have a new one issued, etc so that employees don’t need to take time away from work taking care of this.

As the line between employee’s personal and professional online accounts continues to blur, it is more important than ever to protect the personal identities of everyone.
