The Equifax Mega Breach | You’re Still Not Safe
It’s been a year since the Equifax data breach – one that affected nearly 148 million U.S. consumers in 2017. But even a year’s time doesn’t make the severity and sheer magnitude of this breach any better.
Aside from numbers, the highly-sensitive Personally Identifiable Information (PII) exposed by Equifax only heightened nationwide concern. Names, Social Security numbers, birth dates, and driver’s license numbers were among the millions of data points compromised.
