White Plains computer show highlights identity theft protection software
A computer show held in White Plains Sunday highlighted ways Westchester residents can protect themselves from identity theft.
There are software programs that can protect a PC from people attacking through the Internet. There are also programs that can scramble data and prevent other people from reading it on a PC. Officials from Consumer Protection for Westchester County say another way to protect yourself is to check your credit reports frequently.
Experts say the single best defense against identity theft is early detection and immediate action.
