PORTLAND, Ore. — Today, ID Experts announced a groundbreaking new partnership with Rice Insurance to provide an innovative new solution to address the risk of identity theft. Now, not only can customers select from the traditional offering of insurance benefits, but they can choose to protect their personal identity from fraud through MyIDCare, ID Experts’ proactive monitoring, detection and recovery assistance that alerts individuals to potential threats.
“When 50 percent of individuals who try to fix identity theft on their own are still struggling with fallout after five years following an instance of fraud, we’ve stepped in to take on that challenge to ensure 100 percent recovery to pre-breach status in less time,” says Tom Kelly, president and CEO of ID Experts. “Services like MyIDCare are incredibly important, and we’re honored to partner with Rice Insurance to provide their customers with a premier, concierge-style identity protection service to put to rest fears of identity theft.”
Data breaches affected as many as 145 million people in 2017, rendering their personal information vulnerable to attack. It’s become more a matter of “if” not “when” consumers’ data will be exposed. Because of this, it’s essential that consumers are prepared through identity protection services that detect fraud early, offer easy and open access to highly trained human resources and ensure a financial safety net through identity theft insurance.
“Our commitment to localized, responsive service requires us to think outside the box for our customers,” said Thomas Price, vice president, Technology Practice Leader, at Rice Insurance. “We are responsible for the insurance of our clients’ valued possessions, and there’s nothing more valuable than personal information. We’re incredibly excited to partner with ID Experts to ensure that our customers receive the best of the best identity protection through MyIDCare.”
