“As the world becomes increasingly more connected through social media, digital records and ‘smart’ devices, scammers and fraudsters have greater access to sensitive information than ever before, across all global borders,” said Generali Global Assistance president and COO of Identity and Digital Protection Services Global Unit Paige Schaffer.

“Our identity protection platform combats the increasing threat of identity theft through 24/7 prevention, monitoring, alerting and resolution tools. Identity theft is one of the fastest growing crimes in Canada and we are pleased to now offer our innovative suite of protection services to Canadian organizations, along with their employees and customers.”

Some of the features of the identity protection platform include:
  • 24/7 identity protection expertise and online resources.
  • An online dashboard that helps identify risk levels, track credit reports and scores, access identity theft protection tips, and responds to alerts from one dashboard.
  • Identity monitoring detects fraud at its inception by searching for compromised credentials and potentially damaging use of personal information.
  • Detailed notifications and alerts can be sent to clients whose credit profiles have been changed, or if any black market activity has been detected.
