DES PLAINES, Ill. – After hearing about the massive Equifax data breach that might harm many families in Illinois, state Rep. Marty Moylan, D-Des Plaines, has is announcing that he will host an Identity Theft Seminar on Thursday, September 28th at the Des Plaines Public Library located at 1501 Ellinwood Avenue in Des Plaines from 7:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. to talk about efficient way individuals can protect themselves from identity theft and data breaches.

“I have seen many people either at my office or while I’m going door-to-door, that have been targeted in some way by scammers and identity theft,” Moylan said. “After the most recent data breaches, it is important that we provide resources to help residents protect themselves and pro-actively prevent fraudulent expenses against them.”

Moylan will be joined by representatives from Illinois Comptroller Susanna Mendoza’s office to present a seminar on proven ways residents can better protect themselves from data breaches and cyber-attacks. Recently, Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan issued a statement claiming that 5.4 million Illinois residents had their personal information compromised as part of the Equifax data breach.

“Unfortunately, we now live an in era where hacking personal information and scamming other for financial exploitation are every day risks,” Moylan said. “I encourage any and all residents who are worried about their personal information to come out to my Identity Theft Seminar to discuss ways to proactively protect themselves from attacks like these.”
