HONOLULU — Hawaii State Federal Credit Union (Hawaii State FCU) has partnered with CyberScout™ to offer its members comprehensive services that fight identity theft and fraud.
All Hawaii State FCU consumer checking accounts feature free ID Theft Assistance through CyberScout®. This service, available since June 1, 2017 to consumer checking members and their household, includes proactive education, risk-reduction strategies, identity theft protection, privacy management and unlimited 24/7 resolution support to address identity theft and fraud. If fraud or identity theft is experienced, unlimited access to resolution assistance from CyberScout’s fraud investigators who guide them until their identities are restored is available.
The risk of identity theft increases when consumers’ personal information is stolen or their digital life is exploited by cyber criminals. On a daily basis, consumers must guard against a variety of ingenious hacks, often with minimal information or support. With this new service, Hawaii State FCU members have an added level of protection for their personal information and assets.
“ID theft unfortunately is an issue that all consumers need to be especially vigilant about as cyber criminals are targeting major organizations such as Equifax,” said Andrew Rosen, Hawaii State FCU president and CEO. “Through our partnership with CyberScout, we are providing a service to help our members reduce the risk of identity theft.”
“Our surveys show that consumers turn to their financial service provider first if they experience identity theft,” said Matt Cullina, CyberScout CEO. “Millions of people have been made more vulnerable to identity theft because their personal information was exposed by data breaches. Hawaii State FCU is leading the way in Hawaii by providing this timely service to their members.”
