Identity Theft - Should You Be Worried?
by Robin Gertsen - Senior Product Marketing Manager, PortWise - Tuesday, 2 May 2006.
By simply adding this extra layer of protection, most organizations can safe-guard themselves against losing sensitive data to malicious attackers. Session clean-up should be added as part of a larger security strategy aimed at minimizing the loss of personal data, in combination with device assessment and strong authentication.

Summary

According to recent surveys, identity theft is seeing the largest increase over any other kind of crime worldwide. Depending on what methods of security are implemented by the organization you are doing business with and what the relationship you have with them, secure access can be achieved. Securing access from any location, using any device is not an impossible task but can be overcome by thinking about how users access applications and data in a real-world scenario. Only then can user trust be re-established, and all the benefits of using online communications can come true resulting in maximum customer satisfaction, speedy collaboration, and significant competitive advantage.
