BT Boosts Broadband Security

Posted: 21st Feb, 2006 By: MarkJ
BT has launched two new services aimed at providing practical online and offline support and advice for BT Broadband customers on preventing, detecting and resolving identity theft:

BT Identity Support, which will now come as standard with BT Broadband options 2, 3 and 4, offers advice on how to reduce the chances of becoming a victim when online or offline, recognises the warning signs of identity theft and gets help and support from the BT Identity Advice Line. The professional advisors at the BT Identity Advice Line are also able to support victims of identity theft in resolving their case, including providing letter templates to help resolve issues with creditors.

The second new service is BT Identity Protection, one of the most comprehensive online insurance and advice packages available today. Customers choosing to take out the policy, which costs from £44.992, are covered for up to £50,000 for the cost of restoring their identity, and receive a personal caseworker, passport and driving license replacement cover. The service also provides credit monitoring so BT can let customers know if it believes someone is trying to steal their identity.

Meanwhile, BT has also launched BT Digital Vault, a secure online storage service for any content on a customer’s home computer. If a PC hard disk crashes – perhaps as a result of one of the 100,000 known computer viruses - or if a computer is stolen, Digital Vault ensures that important personal content is not lost – as BT will back-up the data for the customer.

BT Broadband packages already include a range of security features, such as BT Yahoo! Mail Protection with Anti-Phishing to help protect against online fraud and ID theft, which is automatically updated as new threats emerge. And with BT Yahoo! parental controls, also standard with all BT Broadband packages, parents can have peace of mind that their children are safe as they surf the web.
