Baird Joins Leading and Forward-Looking Employers In Offering “Best-In-Class” Employee Benefit, Proactively Protecting Employees in Wake of Recent 3rd Party Mega-Breaches
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Dec. 14, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — InfoArmor, Inc., an industry-leading provider of employee identity protection solutions and elite cyber intelligence services, today announced that financial services leader Baird of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, will offer its PrivacyArmor® identity protection as an employer-sponsored benefit to Baird’s approximately 3,400 employees.
Baird joins a growing roster of leading organizations enhancing their benefits packages with PrivacyArmor’s comprehensive identity protection and restoration, credit monitoring, wallet protection, and cyber security training, both as a recruitment and retention incentive, and as a proactive safeguard against disruption in the wake of recent high-profile cyber attacks and data breaches. PrivacyArmor is the only identity protection service to be so specifically structured as an employee benefit through trusted agents and brokers.
In talking about Baird’s benefits program, Lisa Mrozinski, Total Rewards Manager – Benefits, First Vice President at Baird, said, “What we found was rather staggering in terms of the incident rates and the amount of time it actually took for someone to resolve [identity theft] issues. People in that situation are really scared. When you look at the impact in terms of the lost work hours and the amount of time people are spending on this from a productivity standpoint, and the fear that comes with it, it’s not a huge amount that we’re paying. The cost to not do it was more than the cost of the benefit.”
PrivacyArmor is an identity protection service that minimizes damages to both personal and corporate assets by actively monitoring and notifying employees of suspicious activities such as applications for credit cards, wireless carriers, utility accounts, and non-credit accounts. The service also monitors high-risk identity activities such as password resets, fund transfers, unauthorized account access, compromised credentials, address changes, and public record alerts. PrivacyArmor’s CreditArmor® provides employees with proactive alerts on any changes to credit through the three major credit bureaus, and access to credit scores and annual credit reports to help manage their credit and finances.
Many of America’s top employers trust InfoArmor to protect their employees and their corporate assets. InfoArmor’s staff, agents, and brokers are dedicated to helping organizations ensure seamless and successful program rollouts, simple onboarding, smooth ongoing program implementation, and employee satisfaction.
“The recent increase in breaches and hacks makes it imperative that employers protect their most valuable resources – starting with their employees,” said Ammon Curtis, Senior VP of Product, InfoArmor. “Digital security is perhaps the most important emerging employee benefit – and this is a strong validation of our solution and track record of success to have been chosen to protect Baird’s employees, and employees of the many world-class organizations we now serve.”
