Credit Sudhaar, Mumbai-based Credit Health Improvement Company on Thursday launched Identity Shield service which provides customers with the tools, skills and expertise required to Monitor, Protect and Recover their identity from the risks of Identity Theft and Cybercrime. This is done by using state-of -art data patrol tools and advanced cyber security software backed by practical, legal and technical assistance required to keep their identity secure.
“We store important information online, access our accounts online, interact with friends online and we do this using various devices: PCs, laptops, tablets and mobile devices. This means that we run the risk of hackers and identity thieves stealing our information, phishing websites, key loggers who can "see" our passwords, webcam hijackers who can see what we are doing. Most people do not realise that identity theft, credit misdemeanours, malware and other such criminal acts are fast evolving and don't know how to protect themselves. Identity Thieves methods have changed - not only do they want to avoid detection for as long as possible, they are also changing their tactics to target fast growing social networks and online platforms which have severe financial consequences for consumers. 98% of Indians have not even heard of Identity Theft. This makes Indians a soft target for Identity Theft. This lack of awareness, combined with the associated lack of preventive and monitoring tools implies an even greater risk,” said, Mr. Arun Ramamurthy co-founder, CREDIT SUDHAAR.
“Our Identity is what defines us as an individual and gives our life shape. None of us would like our identity to be compromised. Yet, Identity Crime is a major menace confronting Indians today. In India, there is one victim of cybercrime every second. INR 50,000 crores is lost to Identity Crime every year in India. Research indicates an upsurge in new forms of Identity Theft such as social engineering and mobile cyber theft. This is a sign that Identity Thieves are starting to focus their efforts on these platforms. As per the recent Norton Cybercrime Report, 2 out of 3 Indians have been victims of this menace online. CREDIT SUDHAAR’s Identity Shield follows a 3 step approach to Monitor, Protect and Recover a person's identity,” added, Mr. Gaurav Wadhwani, co-founder, CREDIT SUDHAAR.

This step involves an extensive analysis of a person's credit report so that it may be tracked for stolen identities and fraudulent usage. This is combined with an extensive analysis of customers’ Credit Health and Credit Scores utilizing CREDIT SUDHAAR's unique 8 parameter Credit Health Map. The Credit Health Map is combined with a social score analysis which can help you to monitor your social environment.
