Welcome to Avira, Our Newest Partner in the Fight Against Identity Theft

ID Watchdog is announcing our newest venture with leading Internet security specialist, Avira. This partnership is our fourth in the Internet security space and validates the ever-growing need for consumers to have a one-stop, easy-to-use security solution that protects their personal data beyond the PC.

Don’t be fooled – cybercrime and data theft are highly organized and increasingly motivated by monetary gain. In fact, as a recent CNN article by David Goldman points out:

These aren’t petty thieves. They’re committing breaches like the Sony (SNE) attack that stole credit card information from 77 million customers and the Citigroup (C,Fortune 500) hack that stole $2.7 million from about 3,400 accounts in May.

They’re organized, smart, and loaded with time and resources.

There may not be much you can do to prevent identity theft or data breaches, but it is extremely important to educate yourself in order to maintain the integrity of your identity. Our newest partnership with Avira will present yet another opportunity for consumers to do just that.

Keep up with latest data breaches and threats to your personal data by Following us on Twitter and joining us on Facebook.
