New Web Security Culture Needed After Equifax Data Breach
With the latest wave of news about Equifax’s data breach revealing that even more users of the credit reporting service have had their private information revealed to malicious actors, it is a more important time than ever for companies and users to rethink their approach to internet and data security. Because credit reporting and credit checks have become ubiquitous in many types of commerce, Equifax has left the realm of offering a purely elective service and has become one of a very small group of providers who manage nearly every credit check transaction in the country.
In many ways, it is important to think about the Equifax data breach more like a public disaster than simply a corporate scandal.
