Court Clerk Sentenced for ID Theft

A Florida county employee of the Clerk of Courts was sentenced to three years and one day in federal prison for federal identity theft charges.

Porscha Kyles, used her position at the traffic and misdemeanor division to access the driver's license database for personal information including Social Security numbers and dates of birth. She then sold the information on more than 100 Florida drivers to Derek Denisevich, knowing it would be used to file fraudulent tax returns.

"According to a federal court filing, Kyles knew Denisevich planned to use the information she sold him to file unauthorized tax returns with the IRS and pocket the refunds." - Sun Sentinel
In May 2012 Ms. Kyle's supervisors noted her irregular database activity which led to her dismissal and arrest. Organizations seeking proactive detection of data breaches and user activity monitoring can utilize low-cost on-demand SaaS analytics services.
