Identity theft and monitoring for suspicious activity?

Ok, I work for this idiot company that managed to loose track of a disk with employees names, Social Security numbers, birth dates, etc. Now that my info may be in the wrong person’s hands, what is the best way for me to avoid identity theft?
Do any companies offer any kind of comprehensive identity and credit monitoring service to catch something early and nip any problems in the bud? Are these services limited to just credit monitoring, or will they keep an eye out for other things, like someone trying to obtain a driver’s license with my personal info?
I’m really peeved by my employer’s negligence.
