MADISON, Wis. (11/19/08)--Credit unions now have a new consumer identity theft solution with varying levels of protection to offer their members and staff through the CUNA Strategic Services and Intersections Inc. alliance. Intersections, a provider of consumer and corporate identity risk management services, is partnering with the Identity Theft Assistance Center (ITAC), a nonprofit supported by financial services companies, to jointly offer ITAC Sentinel. The proactive identity theft protection is the only product that includes ITAC victim assistance, which has helped thousands of consumers and law enforcement fight identity theft. ITAC Sentinel continuously monitors personal credit and data with credit reporting agencies and throughout the Internet to quickly spot changes that could indicate identity theft or unauthorized use. Consumers are promptly alerted if changes are detected, so they can review and take immediate action if necessary. In the event of identity theft, ITAC Sentinel provides victim assistance and resources that are necessary for recovery. “During our search for a comprehensive identity theft solution, we were impressed not only by the product, but also by the work done on the back end to catch and convict identity thieves,” said Wes Millar, senior vice president of CUNA Strategic Services.
