  • IDCARE provides response advice relevant to the exposed attributes we are informed about by the breached entity. If you have specific questions about the nature of the exposed attributes or the incident itself that led to the exposure, users are encouraged to speak with the breached entity (notifying organisation) directly.
  • IDCARE does not need your personal information to provide our advice, but we may need your personal information if you would like IDCARE to take response actions on your behalf.
