Credit Monitoring

With all the major data breaches that have already happened and the perpetual risk of more, monitoring your credit on a regular basis is a good practice for everyone. Statistics show that individuals are most often the first to spot irregularities in their credit. Meaning, as good as the services provided by banks and credit card companies are, it is usually you, the consumer, who spots problems first.
