Renowned Security Veteran Neal O'Farrell New Consumer Security Advisor for Intersections Inc.

CHANTILLY, Va., April 27 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Intersections Inc. (Nasdaq: INTX), a leading global provider of consumer and corporate identity risk management services, today announced that security expert Neal O'Farrell will act as the company's Consumer Security Advisor to help educate consumers about identity theft and the need for real, holistic solutions. For the past 25 years, O'Farrell has worked as a top security advisor to financial organizations, government, military, intelligence, and Fortune 500 firms around the world. Today, he is one of the most vocal advocates for consumer identity theft education.

"Neal's track record and years of expertise in the identity theft arena bring additional firepower to our capabilities in fighting identity and cyber fraud. Neal brings a strong, knowledgeable voice to the work we're undertaking at Intersections to open consumers' eyes to the real threats that can cause unthinkable damage to consumer's pocketbook, daily life, and identity," said Intersections CEO and founder Michael Stanfield. "Our comprehensive solutions of education, data monitoring, Internet and computer protection, and resolution provide the protection a consumer needs. Neal understands this and brings his valuable knowledge and resources to join our fight. A successful identity theft protection plan must be based on education, prevention, detection, and resolution -- Intersections' services provide that protection."

"Identity theft is not only the fastest growing crime in America but it is also the most lucrative, attracting organized crime rings and cyber thieves from around the globe," said O'Farrell. "Intersections' focus on educating consumers about this growing threat and the preventative measures they can take to protect themselves against identity theft is right in line with what I've been doing for the past decade. By partnering with Intersections on education and industry initiatives, our goal is to help consumers make informed decisions regarding identity protection."

A nationally recognized expert on cyber security and identity theft, O'Farrell was the driving force behind a number of national security awareness initiatives, including Think Security First, a non-profit partnership between Chambers of Commerce and cities across the country to improve cyber security education at a community level. He is also credited with hosting the first Cyber Security Day, developing the Identity Theft Score, the first risk assessment to help consumers measure and manage their vulnerability to identity theft, and is a founding member of the Center for Information Security Awareness, a non-profit initiative to develop a national standard in employee security awareness.

Mr. O'Farrell will be releasing a new identity theft protection e-book soon that will be available through Intersections.com and identityguard.com.
