Fast, simple tool gauges your risk for ID fraud

Friday, March 27, 2015by  Jon Osterberg

In the wake of recent news that a Premera security breech could impact millions of customers, Northwest policyholders nervously await further word.
   Do you know how much you’re at risk for identity fraud?
   PEMCO customers have a helpful tool that helps gauge that risk. It’s called the ID RiskCompass™, just one aspect of the value-added PEMCO ID Smart™ service that all PEMCO customers get automatically, from our friends at IDT911.
   The ID RiskCompass is an easy online tool that evaluates whether you’re effectively protecting your personal information. I took it, and right off the bat it told me that Washington ranks well above the national average for ID fraud. Oregonians enjoy less risk.
   Altogether the quiz took just four minutes, after which I had my score as well as tips for strengthening my defense against fraud.
   Curious about your own level of risk? Learn more about PEMCO ID Smart, and find the RiskCompass here.
