Cyber Privacy Services
Perhaps you just purchased a new home or a car. Maybe you’re getting married or expecting a baby. You subscribed to a magazine. Or maybe you just ordered something from Amazon. What do all of these activities have in common? There’s a good chance that your personal information may have fallen into the hands of a data broker.
While data brokers often remain invisible to consumers, they have the potential to significantly impact our lives. It can be challenging, if not impossible, for consumers to escape the collection of personal data by data brokers. Unfortunately, there are very few laws to protect consumers from data brokers or the collection of their information.
Cyber Privacy is becoming more of an issue due to the explosive growth of online personal data collection and the reselling of that information from one company to the next. Information such as private addresses, unlisted phone numbers, utilities information, email addresses, social media accounts, family members, personal photos, employment information, salary, date of birth, vehicle registration, property records, voter information, IP addresses, income, debt, loans, social security numbers, driver’s license and driving records, and online and in store purchases and buying habits.
Such information is far easier to obtain than most people realize and can lead to cyber stalking, invasion of privacy, identity theft, loss of employment, damaged reputations, personal threats to individuals and family members, and even extortion both at a personal and corporate level.
Law Enforcement, Judges, Attorney’s, and Police Officers: Criminals often go after the people who arrested them or convicted them in court. They often target family members and attempt to incite others to commit physical retaliation and property damage against their targets.
Corporate Executives: Hackers often attempt to locate and use personal information of company executives in an effort to attempt to guess passwords or impersonate executives to obtain unauthorized access to company systems. Disgruntled employees or customers may locate and use personal information in order to threaten or extort a company executive.
Cyber Stalkers: Cyberstalking may be a result of an upset ex-spouse, former friend, or even a contentious online disagreement. More and more frequently, online disagreements on social media result in one party “doxing’ or obtaining the name, address, phone, and other personal details about someone and then using that information to harass their targets including making false police or CPS reports, signing their target up for unwanted services, attempting to get their target fired, contacting and harassing their targets friends and family members, or even showing up at their target’s home.
The real world implications can be severe.
- In one case, the executives of a company were targeted because someone had a dispute with an employee. The executive’s private home addresses, phone #’s, birth dates, family member’s information and other private information was posted. Pictures of their children were posted with threats to direct pedophiles to their location and schools. One of the executives even became a victim of identity theft when their SSN was used to illegally purchase goods and further used in an attempt to hack the company’s computer systems.
- In another case, false police reports were made against someone causing the police to show up at their home with the belief they had committed a crime. Ads were also taken out on Craigslist and other forums directing men to a woman’s home stating she enjoyed rough sex and to not knock but to force their way into the home as part of her “rape fantasy” potentially putting her at risk of serious physical harm.
- In another case, a police officer’s home address was posted along with false complaints of racism and targeted arrests in an attempt to incite others to threaten the officer’s family and vandalize his home and property.
- And yet in another case, a celebrity’s SSN, driver’s license number and intimate photos were posted on a website by their cyber stalker.
