Online Trust Alliance Recognizes LifeLock Security and Privacy Practices

Company Joins Online Trust Audit Honor Roll for Best Practices

TEMPE, Ariz. – LifeLock, Inc. (NYSE: LOCK), announced that it has been recognized by the Online Trust Alliance (OTA) for its security and privacy practices and been named to the 2015 OTA Online Trust Audit Honor Roll. Conducted annually, the Online Trust Audit is a benchmark audit of a company's commitment to security, privacy and consumer protection. It recognizes brands, websites and applications that implement security and privacy practices to help ensure users' data is protected.

"As consumers' digital footprint and data is of increasing value to cybercriminals, qualifying for the Honor Roll represents an organization's commitment to not only help secure their data, but to also to embrace responsible privacy practices," said Online Trust Alliance Executive Director & President Craig Spiezle. "Qualifying for the Honor Roll speaks to LifeLock's pledge to embrace data protection and privacy enhancing best practices."

The Online Trust and Honor Roll Audit is a comprehensive evaluation of a site's and mobile applications best practices in brand and consumer protection, security and privacy. This annual comprehensive audit underscores the importance of continued monitoring of security and privacy practices and the risks of becoming complacent. Now in its seventh year, the 2015 Online Trust Audit Honor Roll expands to a broader set of privacy and security enhancing criteria reflecting input from over 100 companies, consumer advocates and security professionals.
