About ID Experts
At ID Experts®, we provide innovative software and services that simplify the complexities and reduce the risks of managing data incident response. Since 2003, we have served many of the largest healthcare, financial services, retail, and government organizations in the U.S.
We are passionate about creating exceptional software and providing customer-centric professional services for enterprises subject to regulatory oversight and that have sensitive privacy concerns.
We partner with and participate in numerous groups to advocate for more effective privacy laws and controls for regulated data. We have executive participation with the Consumer Federation of America, PHI Protection Network, and Patient Privacy Rights.
Software that Protects
Our award-winning RADAR® software simplifies the complexity of incident response management, to reduce data breach risks and help companies be in compliance. Our MIDAS™ system protects health plan members against medical identity theft and provides payers with the ability to reduce healthcare fraud.
Experts who Care
Our team of certified experts are passionate about helping organizations protect the privacy of the personal information entrusted to them. We offer complete data breach response services that lower the legal, reputational, and financial risks for companies—and the potential health and financial dangers to individuals affected by a data breach.
Advocates for Privacy
As active advocates for privacy victims, we've contributed to legislation that improves the privacy of Americans, and served as a founding board member of the Patient Privacy Network (PPN) and the Medical Identity Fraud Alliance (MIFA).
Our Passion Drives Us
ID Experts was born out of a passion to help guarantee the privacy of Americans—the privacy of their personal, financial, and health information—in a high-risk, challenging environment. It's timely, important work, and the work that we do best.
Over time, the risks have grown, and so have the costs to individuals if their privacy is compromised. What started as financial problems has escalated to threats to a person's reputation and health.
For these reasons, we've chosen to develop products and services that lower risks to data privacy. We create innovative solutions that help enterprises ensure the privacy of their customers' personal information today and into the future.
