This is a Beacon Hill Course-in-a-Book™ –self-study CE courses that are based on popular industry books written specifically for financial advisors.
Nearly 17 million Americans were victimized by identity theft in 2012 alone: for 13 straight years, it has been America's #1 consumer crime. No one is immune: children, the elderly and even the dead have been victimized. Identity theft can be high-tech, low-tech, or even no tech, via "dumpster diving." You and your clients are vulnerable, and you need to act.
This course provides you with practical steps to safeguard your identity and to help your clients protect theirs. It covers what to do, how to do it, and what to stop doing: the common, inadvertent behaviors that could be setting you up as a victim. The course will help you to understand, anticipate, and prevent all the forms of identity theft, including:
• Identity theft via Facebook and other social media
• Identity theft via your iPhone or Android smartphone
• Theft of your credit or debit cards, and other access to your finances
• Crime sprees performed in your name
• Medical identity theft that could lead to you getting the wrong treatment–and could even kill you
• The fast-growing scourge of income tax identity theft, including stolen refunds.
