One Year Later, Americans Feeling Even More Vulnerable to Identity Theft


A long-term awareness initiative called Americans’ Identity Confidence Index led by Fellowes, a shredder maker, and the Identity Theft Resource Center (ITRC) revealed that the many identity theft and data breach incidents of the past year have led Americans to start actively taking precautions to prevent identity theft.

That’s smart! See the full results.
