The number of identity theft incidents has increased exponentially, and therefore so should the number of victims turning to knowledgeable attorneys and licensed investigators. This is an eye-opening book about the legal and financial risks our families now face. An important read in this for-worse-or-better technology-dominated society. No. A must read.

Ryerson shreds it! Too many people are ignorant to the true scope of identity theft. Add to that, they blissfully underestimate the consequences should they fall victim to this growing crime. This stuff could really happen.
- Kevin Haney, Former Sales Director Consumer Credit at Experian.
This author clearly brings to the forefront the "new digital exposures" threatening all of us in the 21st Century. As a Commercial Property Casualty Underwriter, I have become more aware of and concerned about my clients and their employees' exposure to breaches, hacks, and all types of identity theft. They hear about this in the news every week. This book demonstrates how individuals and groups can protect themselves in a cost efficient manner. A very timely plain English book with good solutions.

As a professional agent and consultant in the payment processing industry, I'm on the front lines of the ever increasing problems with credit card fraud. Due to the new chip and biometric technologies I am growing more confident that people's daily debit card, credit card and phone-pay transactions are more secure from identity theft. I recognize, however, that the other types of identity theft Mr. Ryerson reveals in this easy to read book are still a big risk for all of us at this juncture. Taking the sensible and affordable steps he recommends is smart move.

As a realtor, I understand that every homeowner needs to protect their investment, but how about their family's identities? As this book points out, children are particularly at risk of identity theft these days. This book offers important information about the true scope of the identity theft problem we are all facing, and how to best to protect the kids and whole family.

As an insurance professional for over 50 years, I believe the content of this book is very important to everyone who has assets and people to protect. I was a victim of identity theft myself and was fortunate enough to only have to deal with the stress and anxiety of the event rather than face financial hardship. At the time this happened, these programs weren't available, but now that they exist, I encourage everyone to protect their identities by purchasing one of these plans.

From the Author
I got busy and kind of put off my concerns to the side for a while, but the headlines kept screaming about huge breaches and about how all kinds of entities were getting hacked, and how we were really all vulnerable to becoming identity theft victims. So I started doing more in depth research again, and discovered that there were actually several completely different types of identity theft, and that some--medical and child identity theft, in particular--were growing very rapidly and were a lot harder to address than simply replacing your department store card. In fact, there was a growing number of truly alarming stories about people whose identity theft experience ended up becoming a long and painful horror show. It became clear to me at some point a couple years ago that the notion of "monitoring" and reciving "alerts" wasnt going to cut it in terms of trying to protect yourself against the increasingly clever cyber-criminals. Letting us know that the horse was out of the barn wasn't really a big help, and now we still had to try to restore ourselves to a pre-breach status!
I determined to write a plain English book about this unrealized complexity ( 6-7 different types) and the shortcomings of the popular "protection" plans, which did nothing at all about the "restoration" issue. This book is the result of that research. I think it is eye-opening--at least it was for me. The hardest parts of the book to write were the chapters explaining what was happening in the credit card field, and what efforts smartphones and social media sites were trying to make in terms of security. Things were changing so fast that whatever I wrote about couple months earlier was now no longer describing the cutting edge when I sat back down to continue the chapter! So, it took a lot longer, and turned out to be a lot harder to write about these things in "plain English", which was my primary goal. I hope the book helps a lot of people realize that this problem, and the stress and expense that can come along with an identity theft incident, is something to really try to take off the table if you can, at a reasonable cost. My hope is that this book convinces people that they can indeed do just that. --This text refers to the paperback edition.
