Experian Data Breach Resolution and BillGuard to Reinvent Identity Protection

Posted on Jan 05 2015 by

Experian Data Breach Resolution and BillGuard®, the leading personal finance security company, have launched a strategic collaboration to better protect consumers during an unprecedented era of identity theft.

Responding to the recent wave of payment card breaches, the companies unveiled an advanced identity protection suite, combining BillGuard’s award-winning card fraud monitoring mobile application with Experian’s award-winning identity protection product, ProtectMyID®.

A sharp increase in data breaches over the last several years has compromised the payment cards of millions of American cardholders. Fraudulent use of compromised credit cards and debit cards now accounts for more than 85 percent of all identity theft, which causes nearly $25 billion in financial damage in the U.S. each year . Unfortunately, financial institutions detect less than half of ECF, leaving cardholders to catch the rest – or personally absorb the financial loss.
