PORTLAND, Ore. — September 19, 2017 — Tennessee Farm Bureau Federation, the nation’s largest state Farm Bureau organization with over 600,000 members, now offers members and their families MyIDCare identity protection services from ID Experts, the leader in concierge-style identity protection and data breach services.
Cyber theft is a fastest growing crime in the United States, with cybercrime costs projected by Cybersecurity Ventures to double to $6 trillion annually by 2021. The American consumer is impacted in a devastating manner by this trend. A record 15.4 million Americans were victimized by identity fraud last year according to a study conducted by Javelin Strategy & Research, and an increasing proportion of this is happening online.
“Tennessee Farm Bureau Federation is proud to partner with ID Experts to offer members monitoring services to detect ID theft and restoration services to assist members who have been victims,” said Bryan Wright, Director of Membership. “TFBF believes in top-notch service to members and ID Experts has always delivered.”
“Hardly a day goes by without an organization experiencing a cyber attack exposing sensitive personal information of Americans,” said Tom Kelly, president and CEO of ID Experts. “While physical safety remains important, it is increasingly necessary for consumers to pay special attention to their digital safety. We designed our MyIDCare identity protection services specifically with this in mind.”
With more than 600,000 members, the Tennessee Farm Bureau is a powerful advocate for rural Tennesseans in Nashville and Washington D.C. The organization also provides a wide range of insurance offerings, agricultural services and discount programs for its members. With the addition of MyIDCare, members will have access to a complete solution to address the growing epidemic of identity theft and fraud.
ID Experts is the largest provider of identity protection products and services to both the federal government and U.S. healthcare industry, covering more than 25 million individuals. Its flagship MyIDCare identity protection service is increasingly being channeled through membership organizations and other affinity groups that recognize the unique dangers of identity fraud and are looking for innovative ways to provide value to their dues payers.
MyIDCare includes an easy-to-use web app that monitors for financial, cyber and healthcare fraud, alerting users when suspicious activity is detected. If fraud occurs, ID Experts provides concierge-style identity recovery services to restore their identity to pre-theft status. Further, MyIDCare provides $1 million of identity theft insurance and stolen funds, making it the most complete identity protection offering available.
ID Experts support the marketing efforts of membership organizations and other affinity groups with a custom website and complete rollout plan and toolset to drive consumer engagement. “We make it fast and simple to extend MyIDCare to the members of your organization and their families,” said Kelly.

It is time to re-examine the way that we think about and what we expect from organizations impacted by cybersecurity breaches. A frank conversation on the responsibilities of company leadership, for both the C-Suite and the board, is long overdue. An organization’s responsibilities around consumer privacy in many ways remain somewhat ambiguous. Only by creating and upholding a consistent standard can corporate America ready consumers for the risks inherent in 21st-century levels of connectivity.
