Enterprise Risk Management presented current identity prevention and fraud risk assessment requirements at the Florida Accounting & Business Expo.

Enterprise Risk Management, a leader in fraud and risk assessment, recently presented during the Florida Accounting & Business Expo on identity theft prevention programs, an integral part of the new FACT Act. With almost 5% of the population being a victim of identity fraud in 2009, many changes to regulations have forced financial institutions to enhance these programs.

Robust Identity Theft Prevention Programs Include:

  •      Ways to prevent, detect, and mitigate identity theft with the opening of an account
  •      Involvement of upper management for the implementation and oversight
  •      Continuous assessments on fraud and risk companies are exposed to
  •      Enforcing direct compliance with Information Security Standards

“Sensitive information for businesses and people are not being disposed of properly and can potentially end up in the hands of people looking to deceive others with false identities. If a company doesn’t have a quality identity theft prevention program in place, they are doing themselves and their clients an injustice,” said Silka Gonzalez, President of Enterprise Risk Managment. “The government continues to try and mandate how financial institutions must prevent identity theft, however many aren’t putting the right enforcements in place for this to be effective. We continue to show ways to decrease the chances of identity theft through the proper security measures needed.”
