The Identity Defenders was created because of the ever increasing threats that are present in the world today.
➢ An Identity is Stolen Every 2 seconds.
➢ Symantec reported that 85% of all websites are vulnerable to hackers.
➢ Thieves can be anywhere in the world, with hackers often coming from remote parts of China, Siberia or from terrorist cells.
➢ Not only are the identities of people at risk of being stolen, so too are business identities.
➢ Small business, the lifeblood of our economy, typically does not have the resources to protect its systems making small business especially vulnerable. There are lots of companies that service large business, but few look out for the little guy.
➢ A business that is the victim of identity theft is likely to be out of business within a year. How disconcerting is it that someone could risk their life savings to start a company and build their dream, only to have all that hard work for naught just because someone thinks its ok to take what’s not theirs.
It’s because of this, and much more that The Identity Defenders was created.

Some individuals and businesses need help with their brand. A brand is, for all intents and purposes, an identity.
Sometimes it’s about creating a personal brand so that you have a better chance of getting that job you want. For a business, its about creating an identity that helps it stand out from the competition.
Once the right brand is established, it needs to be effectively promoted. Both individuals (celebrities, thought-leaders, even everyday folks) and businesses have a need to communicate their brand. For an individual it might be about the ability to stand out in a crowd in order to land the right job. For a business its about getting customers.
Online reviews are today’s word-of-mouth advertising when it comes to influence. In fact, according to a 2014 survey by BrightLocal, 88% of employers and consumers surveyed said they read online reviews in order to determine the quality of a potential hire or a local business. With more and more employment and purchasing decisions based on online reviews, a few negative comments can have a significant impact. This is why The Identity Defenders also provides Reputation Management Services.
All of this, of course, is all for naught, should any identity be stolen. When that happens it can be devastating. It might take hours, months, even years to restore and identity to pre-theft status if at all.
In extreme circumstances, it can even cause death. It’s been known to have caused the death of individuals that were victims of medical ID theft when the EMR (Electronic Medical Record) had the wrong blood type administered.
Helping people sleep at night is what motivates The Identity Defenders.
