CSID Review

CSID provides comprehensive identity protection products to businesses, their employees and consumers on a global level. With a full suite of identity monitoring services, fraud detection technologies, insurance and full-service restoration, and breach mitigation and resolution, CSID is a leading provider of B2B and individual identity services. The company has recently been chosen by The Office of Personnel Management, which suffered a security breach, to provide Federal employees identity theft coverage.

What We Like CSID positives

Unique to many identity protection services is CSID’s social media monitoring service which helps protect subscribers’ online reputations while watching out for fraud and identity theft. The service will alert subscribers of instances where they are sharing personal information on social sites that may put them at risk. It will also alert subscribers if they are posting content that might damage their reputation. The CSID Social Media Monitoring service covers the four main social media networks allowing subscribers to get more comprehensive protection than ever before and securing their online privacy and reputation.

CSID holds an A+ Rating with the BBB.

Global companies like MasterCard and Costco have partnered with CSID to help their customers detect and resolve identity theft. MasterCard offers the service at no extra cost to cardholders. Costco ID Protect provides the service at a discounted price to their members.

Supported by a proprietary content management system, CSID’s IMC Admin tool allows businesses to create a customizable white label identity protection portal solution without in house IT resources. The tool offers a visual presentation of identity protection data integrated with your brand with an optimized mobile browsing experience across smartphones and tablets.

What We Don’t Like CSID negatives

While CSID has a stellar BBB rating, the company is not yet an Accredited BBB business and does have quite a few complaints filed with the BBB regarding problems with product/service. The good news is that 10 of those complaints have been closed and the company is quick to respond to any negative reviews.

The two consumer individual plans don’t seem to offer much customization.

The Bottom Line

CSID offers a comprehensive array of identity protection and fraud prevention services to individuals and organizations across the globe. CSID covers every angle of monitoring, prevention and resolution with identity protection, credit data, enterprise and data breach services. CSID powers 80% of the retail identity protection industry, according to their website. Their high level of cyber security and risk mitigation is a good choice for any organization. While the two individual plans don’t offer much customization, they have solid coverage.

There is no shortage of CSID content and resources on consumer insights, research and industry trends on their website that include white papers, webinars, stats, marketing support, news, firewall chats podcast and blogs.
