What to Do When You’ve Been Hacked


You’ve received the ominous message that your account has been compromised. Now what?

May 14, 2017

Message: We have detected unusual activity on your account. Did you authorize this transaction?

At first you think the text from your credit card company is a mistake; then reality sets in. You may have been hacked. Your mind reels as you wonder what information the thieves were able to access and if your identity has been stolen. Sadly, this scenario is all too common. The Federal Trade Commission reports that 11.7 million people find themselves as victims of identity theft every year. 

Cyberattacks target individuals and huge corporations alike. While reputable companies take cyber threats seriously and institute multiple layers of protection, hackers relentlessly pursue ways around obstacles between them and your information. Should you get hacked, take action immediately.
