The Growing Problem of Identity Theft

More than 675,000 records were exposed by data breaches in the U.S. in 2014, according to the California-based Identity Theft Resource Center, a non-profit organization aimed at helping consumers. Since breaches began being tracked in 2005, they have risen by double digits each year. According to Matt Cullina, CEO of IDT 911, an identity theft and data risk management provider serving the US and UK, the problem of identity theft is getting worse.
