Security Locked Safety Protection Concept

The Resource – May 2023

IDShield recognized again as a Leader in Identity and Online Privacy Protection

We are excited to announce IDShield was recognized as the Identity Protection winner at this year’s Global InfoSec Awards. IDShield was also recently acknowledged as a Gold Winner in three categories in this year’s Cybersecurity Excellence Awards.

IDShield received the highest recognition in the following categories in North America:

  • Gold Winner, Identity Theft Resolution Service
  • Gold Winner, Fraud Prevention
  • Gold Winner, Social Media Security

IDShield is the only identity theft protection plan that provides direct access to in-house, industry-leading Licensed Private Investigators when an identity theft issue occurs.

In partnership with Trend Micro, IDShield also provides the most advanced security protection plan on the market, with members receiving maximum security for all their devices against ransomware, viruses, dangerous websites, identity theft and more. 

Additionally, IDShield’s Reputation Management tool takes a sophisticated

technological approach to analyze one’s social media content. Members can analyze 

their Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, TikTok and Reddit accounts to find any 

posts, photos or videos that may be harmful to their online persona. The search results are presented in a personalized dashboard, with simple, actionable steps to either approve or delete any flagged content.

Employees Demand More Education About their Benefits and Are Interested in Legal and IDT Benefits

Many of us in the employee benefits profession cannot help but notice that employees don’t always seem to fully understand their workplace benefits and what benefits are truly even offered to them by their employer. Employees want and expect their employer to provide more and better education about their benefits options. We recently surveyed full-time benefit-eligible individuals nationwide and from various age cohorts to gain further insight into their preferences and expectations around benefit communications, including their awareness and participation in legal and identity theft protection offerings.

Here are some highlights of our findings:

  • 52% of employees do not feel they receive enough communication regarding their benefits.
  • 81% of employees would like information throughout the year regarding their benefits tied to real-life events and topics.
  • 27-31% of employees have no idea whether an identity theft (or group legal plan) is available to them at work.

We also found that employees want help with legal and identity theft concerns.

Almost half of the employees surveyed (42%) experienced a legal matter in 2022. Among those surveyed that experienced a legal issue, 68% said they would be interested in enrolling in a legal plan at work.

More than half of employees (60%) experienced an identity theft attempt. Within that group, 51% said they were interested in enrolling in an identity theft protection plan at work.

As part of our implementation process, we provide a marketing and communication strategy that includes educational content that can be shared prior to open enrollment and throughout the year to promote both participation and utilization.
