Risk Assessment

Identity theft is where personal information is obtained without your consent and often without your knowledge. These details can then be used by criminals to commit identity fraud such as illegally obtaining goods and services in your name.

As a HSBC business card holder you can find out how vulnerable you are to identity theft by taking this Risk Assessment provided by PrivacyGuard®. By answering a series of simple questions - on areas such as how securely you conduct your finances at home and at work to how you use the internet and social media – you'll discover where you are most at risk.

The assessment should take around 10 minutes and once completed, we'll give you practical and tailored advice as to how you can reduce the risk both at home and at work. You can print off your risk assessment report on completion and use it as guidance for the future as to how to reduce the threat of identity fraud.

If you have questions regarding identity theft or if you feel you may be a victim of identity fraud, you can call our customer services team on 0345 607 2536 who will be happy to help. Lines are open Monday to Friday 8am-8pm and Saturdays 9am-5pm (excluding UK bank holidays).
