Identity theft affects millions of Americans.1
Information is moving faster than ever, and life has never flowed more quickly or been shared as broadly. For the thirteenth consecutive year, identity theft is at the top of the FTC’s list of consumer complaints.2 And according to the Department of Justice, approximately 16.6 million Americans were victims of identity theft in 2012, sustaining more than $24 billion of economic losses.3
