Equifax Data Breach Response Kit Now Available

As you surely know, Equifax’s data system was breached from mid-May through July 2017. Hackers got the names, Social Security numbers, addresses and personal data of 143 million Americans. That’s 44 percent of the total U.S. population and 57 percent of U.S. adults 18 years and older. This is far worse than the average data breach.

At the following link, you will find a credit union response kit to the recent Equifax data breach.
