WASHINGTON (AP) — Democratic lawmakers on a House investigative panel are asking the credit-monitoring company Equifax Inc. to provide free credit monitoring and identity theft protection for at least three years.
Saying that one year of protection is "insufficient," Democrats from the U.S. House of Representatives have asked Equifax Inc. (EFX) to extend its free credit-monitoring offer to three years. Fifteen Democrats from the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform signed a letter released to the public on Tuesday addressed to Paulino Barros Jr., the interim CEO of Equifax. The signees "respectfully urge" the company to bolster the timeline for its credit protection and identity theft services following last year's cybersecurity breach that left private information of more than 145.5 people vulnerable .
Lawmakers want Equifax Inc. to offer consumers its free credit-monitoring service for a longer period of time.

Last year's data-breach scandal expected to hurt Equifax (EFX) in the form of customer loss and elevated costs related to the cyber attack, thereby negatively impacting its overall Q4 performance.
In the ongoing battle to save its reputation , Equifax Inc. (EFX) has launched a new service it claims will be "free for life." But the results have been decidedly mixed, according to NBC News . At the start of the month, the Atlanta-based credit reporting service rolled out its "Lock & Alert" service that allows customers to "quickly lock and unlock their Equifax credit report" via computer or app. The service comes after the company extended its deadline to June 30, 2018 for consumers to put a free freeze on -- or to unfreeze -- their Equifax credit file.

Consumer rating agency Equifax’s (EFX) massive security breach last year, announced September 8th, turns out to have been more massive than originally disclosed by the company, according to a report this evening by The Wall Street Journal’s AnnaMaria Andriotis. Citing documents submitted to the Senate’s banking committee, and reviewed by the Journal, Andriotis writes that in addition to compromising social security numbers and addresses, personal information such as tax identification numbers and email addresses and driver’s license issue dates and states was swept up in the breach. 145.5 million people were affected by the breach overall, Equifax had disclosed, but it is unclear how many of them may have been affected at this more extensive level.

The Wall Street Journal reports that hackers who breached Equifax Inc. (EFX) five months ago accessed more of consumers’ personal information than the Atlanta-based credit reporting company disclosed publicly. WSJ reports that it's unclear how many of the 145.5 million people compromised consumers are affected by the additional data including tax ID numbers, which are often assigned to people who don’t have Social Security numbers. A company spokesperson told WSJ that the company complied with "applicable notification requirements in the disclosure process" and that the tax ID numbers "were generally housed in the same field” as Social Security numbers.
A group of 31 U.S. senators said on Thursday they had written to the leadership of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) demanding information on the consumer watchdog's stalled probe into credit reporting agency Equifax Inc's massive data breach. The letter adds to mounting pressure on Mick Mulvaney, the interim head of the CFPB, to resume a full-scale probe into the company after Reuters reported that the bureau had pulled back from an investigation into how hackers were able to steal data Equifax had gathered on around 143 million Americans.
