In 2017, the Identity Theft Resource Center counted a new record high of 1,579 data breaches, exposing more than 178 million records. See https://www.idtheftcenter.org/2017-data-breaches/. The big one—involving Equifax, one of the three major credit reporting agencies—received a lot of attention. Not only was the number of potential victims quite large at 145.5 million, the kind of information exposed was significant. See https://www.idtheftcenter.org/images/breach/2017Breaches/ITRCBreachStatsReport2017c.pdf. It included names, Social Security numbers, birth dates, addresses and, in some instances, driver’s license numbers.

To serve and protect our client’s financial and credit interests, GCH has expanded our solutions to the Identity Theft Protection markets.”
