Equifax Security Breach

Equifax Security Breach

Personal data, including birth dates, credit card numbers, Social Security numbers and more, were obtained in the breach. This potentiates identity theft opportunities related to the 143 million personal data records that may be appended to other acquired records and leveraged for account takeovers.

What to look for

• Application fraud
• Account takeover utilizing call centers, on-line banking/websites, in-branch interactions
• Combining this data with other data breaches to gain complete consumer profiles
