Secure Identity Systems reminds consumers to be mindful of identity theft during holiday shopping with “Identity Theft Awareness Day.”

“The holiday season is prime time for hackers to get their hands on your credit card information, your address – even your identity itself."

Holiday shopping can be a stressful time, and the last thing shoppers need to worry about is cyberhackers trying to steal their identities while making online purchases. With two of the nation’s largest shopping days upon us – Black Friday and Cyber Monday – Secure Identity Systems {SIS} has declared Monday, Nov. 24, 2014 “Identity Theft Awareness Day.”

Throughout the month of November, SIS has been rolling out deals and promotions for complimentary or discounted subscriptions to their total-identity monitoring services that go beyond basic credit monitoring to protect users against fraudulent licenses or government documents being filed in their name.

Without their knowledge, malware can infect a customer’s computer and track every keystroke they make. Malware then transfers confidential information to strangers, putting online shoppers in particular at risk for identity theft. This type of malware is called a keylogger, and it records all emails, messages, passwords and credit card numbers.

The keystroke encryption software from SIS protects everything customers type from hackers who aim to steal their information. Additionally, no virus or spyware database updates are required, meaning customers are always protected.

“To a thief, you’re worth more than you think,” says Secure Identity Systems President Bryan Ansley. “The holiday season is prime time for hackers to get their hands on your credit card information, your address – even your identity itself. We want consumers to be aware of this risk and be mindful while they scour the Internet for that perfect, unique holiday gift.”
