Las Vegas Identity Theft Case Ends After 15 Years - ABC News

Las Vegas Identity Theft Case Ends After 15 Years - ABC News

This article came to my attention on Twitter, and I would have to agree with one readers comment ( ) that "We need stronger protection for consumers and stronger penalties for businesses that allow our data to be stolen."

Worse than the identity theft, is the loss of time and energy spent trying to resolve this case with an unresponsive government that seems utterly clueless.  His case cannot have been unique.  Why did it take so long?

Until sometime in the future when we do not rely on this type of information we are all going to be potential victims.  Now is the time for businesses to batten down the hatches.  Invest in an audit and take the precautionary steps to protect the information your customers entrust with you.

Dolvin Consulting works with Cyber Security Auditors and Administrators (CSA2) to help businesses create and maintain a Written Information Security Plan (WISP).  We help you prepare for the worse, like a fire drill, in the hopes you never need to use what you know.  You cannot be too prepared and if the worse should happen you will have peace knowing that you did everything possible to prevent the breach and you have a solid plan to restore your customer’s faith your business.

Contact Dolvin today to see how we can help you prepare for future data breaches.  We have Forensic experts available if you have already been breached.
