  • Equifax Data Breach

    I know this is in the US, but nice to know that one of the largest organizations who hold your sensitive data allowing financial companies to make decisions on you can't keep their own house in order........


    Equifax, the credit reporting behemoth, said on Thursday that it is the victim of a massive security breach.
    "I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve."

    The consumer is that sleeping giant.!!

    I've been making this same point on Equifax's Facebook page. This also means that 143 million people are now at risk of identity theft thanks to this unaccountable private corporation.

      who was it that decided that CRA's should be allowed to hold so much data about people in one place and be accountable to no one,
