As you’ve seen in the news, Equifax, one of the three consumer credit reporting agencies, announced on September 7th that they suffered a data breach affecting 143 million Americans. Compromised data includes social security numbers, driver’s license numbers, names, dates of birth, credit card numbers, and addresses.
Local residents are at risk of being victims of identity theft. The state Office of Consumer Protection (OCP) is investigating the data breach and has recommendations on how you can protect yourself. Equifax has created a website, equifaxsecurity2017.com, which will allow you to find out whether or not your personal information was affected by the breach. OCP is also recommending that consumers seriously consider placing a credit freeze on your credit reports at all three credit reporting agencies: TransUnion, Experian, and Equifax. OCP urges you to take advantage of Equifax’s offer of one year of free credit monitoring that you can access here: equifaxsecurity2017.com/enroll.
If you have questions regarding the Equifax data breach, please contact them at 866-447-7559.
Have a nice weekend,
Senator Mike Gabbard
Chair, Agriculture and Environment Committee
