PORTLAND, Ore., Jan. 28, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — ID Experts, the leading privacy technology company in data breach and identity protection services, issued the following statement in honor of Data Privacy Day.
Tom Kelly, president and CEO of ID Experts: “The world of identity protection and digital privacy is changing, but is consumer awareness changing with it? Gone are the days when the only areas of risk were your credit card and paper medical records. Now, entry points into an identity are everywhere, from social platforms to smart home devices, and large tech companies are capitalizing on the data they collect from consumers often without their explicit knowledge. We urge companies to increase transparency and follow through on commitments to protect personal data. And we encourage consumers to take ownership of their digital footprint.”
