    Is freezing your credit really enough to prevent identity theft?

    Credit freezes, which block lenders from checking your report, are considered an effective way to prevent scammers from opening an account in your name. Since Equifax announced its massive data breach last September, just 8 percent of consumers have frozen their credit reports. As of Friday, consumers won't have to pay a fee to credit-reporting firms when they want to use a freeze to help protect themselves from identity theft.

    Equifax faces £500,000 fine in the UK over massive data breach

    UK officials have slapped Equifax with a £500,000 (US$660,000) fine for failing to protect up to 15 million citizens' personal data.

    Equifax slapped with UK's maximum penalty over 2017 data breach

    Credit rating giant Equifax has been issued with the maximum possible penalty by the UK's data protection agency for last year's massive data breach. Albeit, the fine is only £500,000 because the loss of customer data occurred when the UK's prior privacy regime was in force -- rather than the tough new data protection law, brought in via the EU's GDPR, which allows for maximum penalties of as much as 4% of a company's global turnover for the most serious data failures. Personal information that was lost or compromised in the 2017 Equifax breach included names and dates of birth, addresses, passwords, driving licence and financial details.

    Equifax Gets Maximum U.K. Privacy Fine Over Cyberattack Lapses

    Credit reporting company Equifax Inc. was slapped with a maximum 500,000 pound ($658,000) fine by the U.K.’s privacy watchdog for failing to protect the personal information of as many as 15 million British citizens during a cyberattack on its systems last year. The Information Commissioner’s Office concluded a probe into the breach, during which personal data was stolen from some 146 million people worldwide, and found that the company’s measures to protect the data were “inadequate and ineffective.” Equifax’s U.K. unit had “failed to take appropriate steps to ensure” that its U.S. parent was protecting people’s personal data, the regulator said Thursday. “The ICO’s probe, carried out in parallel with the Financial Conduct Authority, revealed multiple failures at the credit reference agency which led to personal information being retained for longer than necessary and vulnerable to unauthorized access,” the regulator said in an emailed statement.

    Alibaba's Ant Financial denies stealing from Equifax

    Ant Financial has denied claims that it covertly raided Equifax -- the U.S. credit firm that was hit by a hack last year -- to grab information, including code, confidential data and documents to help recruit staff for its own credit scoring service. The Alibaba affiliate, which is valued at over $100 billion, launched Sesame Credit in China in 2015, and a report this week from The Wall Street Journal suggests that it leaned heavily on Equifax to do so. Ant Financial hired China-born Canadian David Zou from Equifax and the Journal claims that Zou looked up employee information to gauge potential hires and squirreled away confidential documents via his personal email account.
