A key to safeguarding personal identity

While the cost of a data breach was around R31 million in 2020, the financial implications don’t fully account for reputational damage and customer churn. By taking a proactive approach to data breaches, organisations can better protect consumers whilst mitigating financial losses. TransUnion TrueIdentity platform gives consumers access to their credit information and has specific features to help safeguard identities in light of a potential data breach.

  • Access to the TransUnion credit report (updated daily) to gain insights on credit-related identity theft or fraud
  • TransUnion credit monitoring alerts — with email notifications of changes on a consumer’s credit file
  • Educational resources focused on credit management, fraud victim support and identity theft prevention
  • Dark web monitoring of surface, social, deep and dark websites for potentially exposed personal, identity and financial information
