Newly Launched Identity Theft Protection Company, ID360, Provides

Comprehensive Investigative and Recovery Services

MAHWAH, N.J., March 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- As identity theft

continues to rise, reliable solutions are needed to mitigate the often

far-reaching impact on victims. ID360 is a newly launched company that

goes beyond identifying potential identity fraud-it offers

comprehensive investigative and recovery services to resolve these



The N.J.-based company is comprised of highly trained recovery

specialists and a national network of former federal, state and local

law enforcement professionals and former prosecutors who have worked

in the public and private sectors. ID360 offers its service directly

to employers, associations and other groups, which then offer the

service to their constituents.

After a victim of identity fraud becomes aware of the problem, they

often are left to fend for themselves to restore their identity.

Remediating an individual's identity can take about six months or 200

hours, often requires the victim to take time off from work or resolve

their issues during the work day, and frequently requires a depth of

knowledge typically not possessed by the average victim. Having

experienced professionals to execute the recovery saves time and

offers peace of mind. ID360 performs the legwork to restore a member's

identity so they can continue regular activities.

"Organizations that offer ID360 give their employees or members

comfort and an all-inclusive solution to a widespread problem. Our

service also boosts the company's bottom line as a whole by preventing

otherwise lengthy work-time interruptions," said Jim LaPiedra, CEO and

President of ID360 and a former Deputy Inspector with the NYPD and

former security executive with a global financial institution.

Dan Russo is the COO and General Counsel of ID360 and a former partner

in one of the world's largest law firms where he represented one of

the national credit bureaus. He addressed credit monitoring, which

many companies offer to individuals whose identities were compromised

due to a data breach. "Credit monitoring is merely a tool that may

detect new account fraud but will miss some of the most problematic

types, including tax refund fraud, criminal identity fraud and medical

identity fraud," he said.

"But no matter the type, after becoming aware of the issue the victim

then is faced with the daunting question of 'Now what?' An efficient

and effective response is critical. ID360 fills a real void in the

marketplace because we handle the matter for our members utilizing a

limited power of attorney. This frees up their time for work and

family rather than spending countless hours in call queues with

multiple agencies or creditors or both."

"We are a real benefit to employers as well, because we know that

employees have little choice but to attempt to navigate through the

maze of red tape during working hours," Russo added.

According to a recent Javelin Strategy & Research report, identity

fraud increased by more than one million victims in 2012. Last year,

criminals took $21 billion from 12.6 million Americans-the highest

amount since 2009. Every three seconds, a person's identity is stolen.

About ID360 Based in Mahwah, N.J., ID360 is an identity protection

company that provides extensive educations to its members on identity

theft avoidance and detection and undertakes investigative and

recovery efforts for its members in cases of identity fraud. Drawing

upon a multidisciplinary team of legal, law enforcement and

investigative professionals, ID360 handles all aspects of identity

theft restoration. The service is available to individuals through

employers, associations and other group offerings. Visit to learn more.
