Mike has been a director with PrivacyGuard for over 2 years. He's a member of the international Association of Privacy Professionals. His best tip about reducing the risk of ID theft has to do with online profiles:
So many people post personal information on social networking sites, whether as part of a quiz (to determine their Royal Name, for example), as art of their profile (have you identified the elementary school you went to?) or even via location based check-ins (hello, Mr. Criminal, I'm an hour away from my house). Be careful what you're posting. Not every one of your "friends" is actually a friend.Email Mike [at] privacyguard [dot] com
