EVS Reflects on Internet Safety Month

The National Cyber Security Alliance declared June as National Internet Safety Month, and has been exploring how individuals and
organizations can contribute to the Stop, Think, Connect campaign. As this important month has come to an end,
EVS has taken the opportunity to reflect on what this campaign means, and how
they as an organization can help prevent identity theft and other online
fraudulent activities.

One of the most important things to remember is that
Internet fraud happens all the time, not just during a specific month, says VP
of Client Services, Eric Knapp. In an interview, Knapp stressed the importance
of consumers and businesses alike to be smart. This is where EVS falls under
the Think step of the campaign.
Consumers and businesses need to look beyond the convenience of modern
technology, and take the extra time and step to be authenticated, Knapp

EVS offers identify
verification and authentication
that acts as the Stop step in the campaign. By authenticating an identity, it stops
unauthorized information from being processed and prevents further damage. This
can stop online fraud from happening and protects consumers and businesses. EVS
has their own 3-step campaign to help companies protect their name – Verify, Comply, Achieve.

So whats in the months to come? As Knapp stated in his
interview, mobile
is a top risk moving forward from Internet Safety Month. With the
increase use/dependence of mobile devices, it has become the newest hub for
fraud. As highlighted in the latest issue of the EVS monthly newsletter, Identinews,
mobile theft is becoming just as easy as the payments are.

Finishing up the interview, President & CEO, Jeff Davis
added, Consumers need to make sure to Connect
to businesses that make security a priority. EVS can help companies integrate a
prevention strategy
into their business model that will attract consumers
who are concerned about fraud.

EVS provides online and mobile
security solutions
that help to protect consumers and businesses 365 days a
