When compromised, criminals can take advantage of sensitive data like Social Security Numbers and Medical ID Numbers for months, or even years, before suspicious activity appears in credit reports. Organizations often choose to provide consumers with Kroll's identity monitoring solution to reveal known triggers of identity theft that credit monitoring alone would not expose.
Identity monitoring provides data associated with an individual’s non-credit-based personally identifiable information (PII), and reports information that is not tracked by credit bureaus. This type of monitoring can look for information in public records, or it may be searching for instances of PII found on the Internet, particularly sites known for illegal sales of PII.
Kroll’s identity monitoring services provide web-based monitoring of PII including:
Kroll’s identity monitoring services instantly notify affected individuals by email of any activity related to their personal information. Individuals then have the opportunity to review the information and take appropriate steps if the information is deemed inaccurate or if it is indicating identity theft or fraud.

Your customers, employees, or students will be confident that, should indications of identity theft be detected, Kroll’s licensed investigators will work with them to quickly restore their identity to pre-breach status.
