Data Breaches are everyday news. Retailers, Hospitals, Insurance providers, and even government agencies collect and store data about us in their Data Warehouses. Although adequate precautions are taken to protect this data, these Warehouses are constantly under threat of a Data Breach.

It is estimated that hackers have acquired private data on 280 M Americans, and one in 3 Americans has been a victim of Identity fraud.

Because the information about breaches is never clearly disclosed, customers are unable to relate the effect of a Data Breaches on their personal lives. IDVigil informs its user of a Data Breach and asks the user if he/ she thinks the breach may have affected him/ her.

Based on the response, IDVigil advises the user on how to minimize the impact of the breach. No personal information is captured in this process; the user may chose to remain anonymous.
