Current and past victims have found the restoration process exhausting, time consuming and overwhelming. Canadians have demonstrated an appetite for restoration protection; however current non-facilitated programs often leave victims feeling that the restoration assistance/coverage was inadequate. Although the market is educated regarding the risk and recourse of having ones identity compromised, restoration solutions that are too costly tend to cause many individuals to delay purchasing restoration protection until they have first-hand knowledge of a victim.
