Paige Schaffer, President and COO of Generali Global Assistance’s Identity and Digital Protection Services Global Unit, commented on today’s news, “As the world becomes increasingly more connected through social media, digital records and ‘smart’ devices, scammers and fraudsters have greater access to sensitive information than ever before, across all global borders. Our identity protection platform combats the increasing threat of identity theft through 24/7 prevention, monitoring, alerting and resolution tools. Identity theft is one of the fastest growing crimes in Canada and we are pleased to now offer our innovative suite of protection services to Canadian organizations, along with their employees and customers.”
