TEMPE, Ariz., March 29, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LifeLock® Inc., an industry leader in proactive identity theft protection, has recently launched an upgraded website to provide the most up to date facts and figures related to the crime of identity theft as well as tools and tips for consumers to help protect themselves. The newly renovated website also includes a section to provide support and resources to aid businesses in protecting their employees.
The new website provides consumers with an "Understanding Identity Theft " resource, a form of Identity Theft 101, to better understand how personally identifiable information (PII) can be stolen and misused.

"For the last five years LifeLock has been at the forefront of educating consumers and law enforcement about the crime of identity theft," said Marvin Davis, Chief Marketing Officer of LifeLock. "With the launch of the upgraded LifeLock.com we are fully utilizing the internet to share these educational tools with the world."
LifeLock.com has also provided an outlet for businesses to differentiate their employee benefits with customizable identity theft protection.
