PSEC ALERT COUNTERMEASURES HELP PROTECT US!What is a countermeasure?Would you post your social security number online? How about your drivers license number or your passport? These things are unique to you and can be used to steal your identity, so we protect them by using countermeasures. A countermeasure could be to keep them in a lock box or safe. Another countermeasure could be to shred copies of the numbers when they are no longer needed. A countermeasure is anything you can do to protect your information. Countermeasures help protect you and your family. Use countermeasures everyday. Remember to use them online and tell your family to use them. Keep your information safe at home and at work.
