When consumers and businesses mismanage personal data and become Identity Obese through excessive collection, retention, and sharing of personal information, they expose themselves to increased identity theft risks. The consequences of identity theft can be enormous and lead to lost productivity and wages, out of pocket expenses, damaged reputation, reduced credit score, inability to borrow or secure a line of credit, and even death due to the co-mingling of victim's medical records with that of the identity thieves.

- Prevent others from stealing your personal information or at least attempt to make their task more difficult,
