When a laptop belonging to an executive of a mortgage company was stolen, management feared criminals would gain access to sensitive customer data or personally identifiable information. The potential breach required that roughly 18,000 customers spread across 22 states be notified and their credit monitored. Working with USI’s Management and Professional Service experts, a specific risk management process was immediately initiated that minimized hard costs to $255,000. This sum was further covered by the USI PrivaSafe proprietary facility. During this period, affected customers were notified immediately and provided credit monitoring services.
