Cybersecurity: How to Protect Your Finances from Fraud

Cyber security data protection

You’re not alone in the struggle to safeguard personal information – especially in this time of frequent identity theft reports. ICMA-RC periodically makes enhancements to their account management portal, Account Access, to provide you with additional fraud prevention security. These improvements strengthen existing processes for authenticating participants as well as identifying and preventing fraud. ICMA-RC regularly evaluates fraud prevention processes to ensure your assets are protected at all times.

There are also steps you can take to help prevent fraud:

  • Update your contact and bank account information promptly with ICMA-RC when anything changes.
  • Create unique and strong passwords – include numbers, symbols, with uppercase and lowercase letters. Don’t use the same password for multiple online accounts or websites; and don’t use passwords hackers can easily guess (family members’ names and birthdates).
  • Check your account regularly and notify ICMA-RC immediately of suspicious activity.Cyber Security ICMA
  • Review all mail, email and other communication from ICMA-RC and report discrepancies. Also, be careful of suspicious communications, which could be from identity thieves trying to steal your personal information.
  • ICMA-RC is taking precautions to safeguard your account. You should never give your online account information to anyone who calls or sends an email. ICMA-RC will never reach out to you in these ways to verify your online credentials.

If you are a victim of identity theft or believe your information has been illegally obtained, contact ICMA-RC immediately at 800-669-7400.

For more information about identity theft protection and resources, see the Federal Trade Commission’s website.
