(The opinions expressed here are those of the author, a columnist for Reuters.) By Gail MarksJarvis NEW YORK, Sept 27 (Reuters) - There is a widespread sense of fear hanging over consumers in the aftermath of the data breach at credit-monitoring firm Equifax revealed in early September that approximately 143 million consumers' personal and financial records were exposed. It would be bad enough if people were merely worried about crooks using their Social Security numbers to empty their bank accounts or steal tax refunds. "If you don't know who to trust anymore, you don't even know who to go to for help." A worried Chicago resident echoed this in an email after going to the Equifax website to get a credit freeze: "I received the follow-up email a few days ago and had to give the last four digits of my Social Security number and answer some credit questions from my credit history.
There’s obviously the headline data breach that affected an unprecedented 143 million U.S. consumers. Then there is the footnote that the hack also included records on 400,000 people in the U.K. There’s the fact that Equifax was hacked as much as five months prior to disclosing it to the public. Call me crazy, but I think this steep sell-off in EFX stock is actually a buying opportunity.
Two weeks after Equifax disclosed a breach that possibly exposed the personal data of 143 million Americans, potential victims still have many questions.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said in a statement on Monday that all credit reporting agencies must register with the state and comply with its cybersecurity rules. The regulation, ordered in the wake ...
The best thing that the 143 million victims of the Equifax data breach can do to protect themselves is to freeze their credit. But what if you’re seeking a mortgage, applying for a credit card, o...
Shares of Equifax (EFX) have lost a third of their value since it revealed that it had been hacked, perhaps revealing the data of as many as 143 million people. One of the concerns appears to be whether the government will take a heavier hand with regulation, something that has hurt not only Equifax but TransUnion (TRU) and Experian (EXPGY) as well. Credit bureaus are also subject to scrutiny by state attorney generals.
A U.S. House panel said Wednesday the chief executive of Equifax will testify about a massive data breach that impacted up to 143 million Americans at an Oct. 3 hearing, as the company's shares fell another 14.6 percent amid pressure on the company to explain its handling of the hack. The company's shares have fallen more than 30 percent this week amid letters from members of Congress about the hack and requests for answers. Representative Greg Walden, Republican chairman of the Energy and Commerce Committee, and Republican Representative Bob Latta, said that the company's chief executive, Richard Smith, had agreed to testify.
