We believe demand for the ID Sentry product is going to grow rapidly. With the continued rise in ID fraud and cyber-crime, ID Sentry provides an increasingly important service for the everyday online identity protection.
Here we would like to take a moment and explain why we started Wintarsons, and also what lead us to be interested in Identity Fraud, and more importantly find out what steps we could take to protect our personal information.
Like most of you, we are considerable consumers and users of online content, making online purchases, using social media, gaming and so on. To use these service providers requires you to give information about yourself; everything from name, address, date of birth to credit or debit card information, email addresses, passwords and more. Once we have given this information, we rarely give it another thought.
This changed about a year ago when British Airways was involved in a Data Breach. We don’t need to go into specifics about this breach, but we had all used British Airways services in the past. Had our information been collected? And if it had, how was it being used? Were we now at risk of having our information used fraudulently? Nobody was able to answer our questions any further than ‘you might be’ at risk. Like with all data breaches, there is an element of the unknown as to what data has actually been taken, and thus no guarantees can be given as to its whereabouts and use.
We quickly realised that despite any fines leveraged against an affected company, the breached data as now out there online and there was no way to just click a button to delete it. This got us thinking about a way to track and monitor our information on the web so that if it was available, we would have a better chance of knowing about it and would be able to do something about it.
Like all good ideas, the concept was fine, but monitoring the internet for this information is easier said than done. This is when a chance meeting with a company called Collinsons Group happened. We had met them through another business channel and found out that they had a tool for searching the internet including the Dark Web for this type of information. They had developed this tool for businesses that wanted to check their information. We realised quite quickly that this was what we had been looking for; a way to search for information on us and alert us if anything had been found.
This leads us to where we are today. We are providing a service that allows you to have personal information tracked and, in the event, that anything is found, be alerted to this. Of course, being alerted is one thing, knowing what to do is another. So, in addition, an expert customer service team is also provided to help you.
