February 11, 2019

EZShield, a portfolio company of The Wicks Group (“Wicks”), today announced a series of new resources tailored to address how Financial Institutions (FIs) can combat identity crimes and mobile cybersecurity threats as it impacts the omni-channel customer experience. Now, in its third edition, EZShield has just released an industry-essential eBook, The 2018 Field Guide to Identity Crime: The Financial Institution’s Guide to Protecting Account Holders in 2019. In conjunction with the eBook release, EZShield will present a free, exclusive 15-minute webinar on Wednesday, February 13th at 8 AM PT | 11 AM ET. Both the eBook and the Webinar have been created in support of FIs on a quest to protect account holders against the growing cyber threats in today’s digitally connected world.


More than 79 million Americans were victims of identity crimes in 2017. That’s two new identity crime victims every second. In light of the challenges facing today’s FIs, EZShield has reimagined its annual eBook on the topic, now in its third edition, and published this critical resource to further address how to best protect account holders in 2019. In the age of mega data breaches, social media hacks, phishing emails, and of course, the Dark Web, FIs need to know exactly what they and their account holders are facing and how to significantly reduce their vulnerabilities.
