How to Determine the Effectiveness of Your Data Theft Protection Software - Image 1

Data theft is one of the most prevalent crimes of the current age, often leading to financial trouble and reputation damage. This means protecting yourselfâand your networkâfrom data theft should be a chief priority. The problem is that not all data theft protection is as strong as it's supposed to be. Below is a quick but comprehensive way you can judge the effectiveness of your data theft protection.

Comprehensive Monitoring

There are certain pathways that can be monitored where private information is regularly auctioned and spread. The most adept protection plans will monitor these streams for any part of your personal information to quickly enact a plan of defense against data theft. The faster your protection responds to these threats, the more secure your data will be.

Sophisticated Reporting

If your data theft protection plan alerts just you of your stolen data, then there's a big problem. This means that you're held liable for fixing everything that some malicious individual may perform. The more robust plans will contact more parties. They should contact you and the major credit bureaus at a bare minimum. The more parties they contact, then the more likely it is your data will be safe.

Preventing Damage

Data theft protection plans should have certain measures put into place that prevent malicious entities from using your data to register for new lines of credit and to even steal your property.

Your protection plan should have team of experts dedicated to helping you prevent any damage that thieves might try to force upon you, your credit and your property. They should help prevent you from receiving legal action that results from acts committed by data thieves.

Information Protection

The last and most important feature that your data theft protection plan should provide is the ability to encrypt information using reliable means. This means personal documents on your computer, data that you transmit and anything else that could be used to steal your data should always be encrypted so that data thieves have a much harder time obtaining it.

Safeguarding Your Data from Malicious Parties

An data theft protection plan should be your first and last line of defense against data theft. They should work diligently to obscure information, monitor data theft channels, and prevent you from paying for the problems that data thieves cause.

According to a criminal activity specialist from A-1 Bail Bonds, Inc., it's estimated that there is a new victim of data theft every two seconds. If your data theft protection plan doesn't offer the above listed protections in their full capacity, then it may be time to consider switching to a better protection plan.
