As much as we try to protect ourselves from identity theft, we can’t always prevent it. In this video, Adam Levin, chairman and founder of CyberScout and author of Swiped, explains his three-pronged approach to protection from identity theft as well as what to do in the event that your identity is stolen. Mr. Levin’s three-pronged approach is as follows—minimize your exposure, monitor your information and manage the damage if your information is stolen. First, you minimize your exposure by taking proactive steps such as using strong passwords and limiting sharing of important data. Second, you monitor by checking credit scores, watching your accounts and knowing what companies are doing with your personal data. Finally, you manage the damage if your information or identity is stolen.
