Welcome to Addison Avenue’s Security Podcast.
This episode asks the question: How safe are you?
Identity theft is more than just a stolen credit card. The modern criminal can find ways to acquire your account information and wreak some serious financial damage. ID theft and fraud is becoming more rampant and is considered a growing federal crime. Did you know every year another 7 to 10 million people in the United States alone fall victim to identity theft? It can happen to you if you're not careful and knowledgeable about how to protect yourself and your financial information.

Addison Avenue is dedicated to helping our members become more aware of this increasing threat. Prevention is key. For this reason, we have created the following ten security steps to help you be more secure:

The 10 Security Steps
1. Use Addison Avenue Web BillPay – By using Web BillPay it is easy to sign up for E Bills. E Bills are electronic versions of your bills that usually come in the mail. By keeping your bills in Addison Avenue Web BillPay, you safeguard yourself from someone stealing your identity from your physical mailbox.

2. Use Addison Avenue E-Statements – E-Statements are another way to keep your physical mail secure because E-Statements are the electronic versions of your Addison Avenue statements. Since you can only see E-Statements by logging in to Online Banking, this keeps them far away from unwanted bad guys. Sign up easily via Online Banking on the website.

3. Shred your paper. – This sounds simple, but identity theft often occurs after you’ve thrown away important documents.

4. Limit what’s in your wallet – If you’re not using a card put it away for safe keeping. Having too many cards in your wallet increases your risk. This will help minimize your risk if your wallet gets lost or stolen.

5. Use Firewall Software on your computer. – There are many great software packages available today that will protect you and your computer from unwanted hackers. If you are on a wireless router or unsecured network, you will need a firewall to protect your computer.

6. Use Antivirus Software on your computer. – This is very important. Many new techniques of stealing your identity can be blocked or found by running this type of software on your computer.

7. Question suspicious email. Be extremely cautious about opening attachments—even from people you know. Also, make sure the links within emails point to the website you expect. Many phishing scams use incorrect links to guide you to malicious websites that can capture your login information, so be sure to stay away from those.

8. Use secure ATM machines. Better yet, find an Addison Avenue or CO-OP ATM near you by visiting our website.

9. Routinely change your password. And don't share it with anyone.

10. Check out the Credit Bureaus - Know what's on your credit report, and contact them immediately if your information has been compromised. See our Credit Awareness page on our website for more information.

By following these ten steps, you are helping to ensure your security against Identity theft and fraud. Here at Addison Avenue we strive to protect yourself and your family members from identity theft by seeking out the latest technologies and techniques that will keep your accounts safe and sound.
