How to protect your ID when your personal data has been lost/

Worried about the safety of your personal data?

The Child Benefit Agency has lost the personal details of every parent who receives child benefit, including names, addresses, dates of birth, national insurance numbers, child benefit numbers and bank accounts. As a result, 25 million people are now vulnerable to identity fraud if the data on two discs falls into the wrong hands.

They arenít the only ones. In a matter of weeks, data breaches have been reported by organisations as diverse as Standard Life and Next.

No wonder recent research showed that many of us do not trust big institutions to keep our personal information safe. The Canvases Opinion survey found that 34 per cent of us do not trust insurance companies, 33 per cent think Internet retailers arenít secure and 32 per cent believe that government cannot be relied on to safeguard the data that can be used to impersonate us, borrow money in our names Ė and ruin our lives

If you think you could be at risk, take these simple precautions as soon as possible.

1. Check your bank statements carefully. With your account data and basic personal information, criminals could try to get hold of your money. If you spot any unfamiliar transactions, tell your bank immediately and explain the circumstances.

2. Look at your credit report. The information in the Child Benefit Agency records is enough for a criminal to apply for loans, credit cards and even mortgages in your name Ė as well as other forms of credit such as mobile telephone and catalogue accounts. Your credit report lists all your credit

commitments and recent applications for credit, so you can instantly see if someone has been trying to use your ID and put a stop to problems before they can develop.

3. Minimise the information you post on social networking sites.  Organised gangs are now focusing on ID fraud as a profit centre and they know that many people give away useful snippets that could be passwords or key dates giving access to your bank and card accounts. Edit out the names of pets, motherís maiden name, where you went to school and anything else you might use as a password or PIN.

4. Watch out for hoax calls, letters or e-mails. Taking advantage of your distress in the wake of a data breach, criminals may call, e-mail or write pretending to need further information in order to protect you. In fact, they hope to rip you off more thoroughly Ė so donít give away information to people you do not know. Check with organisations that might have a genuine reason for contacting you before you part with your data.

5. Ensure that your bank and credit card account passwords do not relate to the data that could be compromised. Many of us tend to use details such as childrenís names and memorable dates as passwords to protect our bank and credit card accounts. Fraudsters are likely to make a good guess at these passwords which will give them access to your finances for further theft and much more. Make sure you update your passwords on a regular basis and use unique words that do not relate to data that could be compromised in a data breach.

Credit monitoring is such an effective method of protecting yourself that it is recommended by the Home Office and many responsible organisations automatically offer it to customers and clients who have been affected by a data breach.

Then keep on checking regularly, to give yourself peace of mind and make sure that criminals havenít taken their time in impersonating you.
