Equifax Data Breach


Equifax Data Breach

You may have heard about the recent data breach at Equifax. Since Equifax is a credit reporting agency, you won’t necessarily be notified if you were affected. This article includes more details: http://money.cnn.com/2017/09/07/technology/business/equifax-data-breach/index.html.

Information breached on approximately 143 million people may include SSN, name and address, credit card information, date of birth, and even driver’s license number. Equifax has created a special security site to check your potential impact and sign up for a free credit monitoring service. Even if you discover you are not likely affected by the breach, Equifax will still offer you the ability to sign up for the free credit monitoring for a year.

For more information, access Equifax’s special security site at: https://www.equifaxsecurity2017.com/. At the bottom of the site page there is a button to “Check Potential Impact”. Follow the instructions to check your impact and enroll into the free credit monitoring service.
