Ever considered how many passwords, PIN numbers, user IDs and other forms of identification you have? More importantly, are they secure?
John Becker, Chief Information Security Officer at the Australian Taxation Office (ATO), says Privacy Awareness Week is a great opportunity to make sure you’re identity theft proof.
“These days identity thieves can use stolen ID’s to access your bank account or credit card, steal your superannuation, sell you property or commit fraud and other offences.
“Remember you can wear the blame and the expense. It can be a long and expensive process proving you’re not to blame and getting your identity back.”
“Getting your TFN in particular is solid gold for fraudsters.” So John warns keeping your Tax File Number (TFN), PINs or passwords in your mobile phone, tablet or wallet makes you an easy target.
“It helps get them into your tax, your super, your bank accounts, so only give it to us, your super fund, bank or other financial institution…organisations that need it and you can trust.
“Letting someone use your TFN or using someone else’s are also serious crimes carrying heavy penalties. Be wary of emails, texts or phone calls asking you to “confirm” your TFN or asking you for bank account details as these could be scams.”
Now, do the ID theft test ID theft tool and see how at risk you are.
