Event Description:

The Equifax data breach is, by far, the worse data breach that this country has seen to date. Not only has it impacted United States consumers but it has also impacted Canadian consumers. Sadly, we have yet to see the full impact. 

The potential for you to have your identity stolen is greater than it ever was! Identity theft is NOT just about your credit. It is about YOU. Identity theft will impact every corner of your life, your spouse or significant other, and your children from birth to adult. No one is safe. The potential for damage is real.

Monitoring only of your credit report may only tell you something has happened. It does nothing to fix it when it happens. It’s like getting the phone call that your house is on fire…but no help in putting out the fire. “Free” is not necessarily good when it comes to protecting your identity.

Learn what to do and what not to do from the experts to protect your identity. You’ll leave the Chamber Academy with a better understanding about WHY you should be concerned about who has your identity and what to do about it when it happens.

Consumers, business owners, and anyone who handles the personal information of employees or consumers.
