Description

The term 'identity theft' refers to criminals obtaining information about you that can then be used to make purchases or enter into contracts in your name. In some instances, thieves will steal the details of your customers or clients, using their information to conduct fraud. Identity theft can result in direct financial loss, damage to your credit rating, difficulty getting loans and credit cards, and months of reorganising your financial accounts. 

Did you know identity theft isn't only carried out through computers and the Internet: other methods include retrieving unshredded documents from rubbish bins and criminals contacting you directly and pretending to be from a legitimate organisation in order to obtain personal data. Fortunately there are many preventative measures you can take to substantially reduce the chance of your identity being stolen.

This course will show you the steps you can take to minimize damage if you become a victim of this crime. It will also give you the tools to protect yourself and your staff by highlighting the issues around identity theft.
