I will be extremely surprised if Equifax survives this. Here's to hoping they don't!
Jail time and massive fines for a lot of current and now former Equifax executives would be a good start to deterring other companies who put profits before the security of citizens' personal data. Perhaps a few public executions of top executives if further persuasion is necessary.

Re: EQUIFAX hacked

It just gets better for Equifax. The company's officer in charge of data security was a music major and had no experience in data security. There is an effort underway to scrub her from the internet.

Re: EQUIFAX hacked

Credit "locks/freezes" should be at no cost to consumers. It's ridiculous that you have to pay to protect your identity and financial information.

The three “sold a small percentage of their Equifax shares,” Ines Gutzmer, a spokeswoman for the Atlanta-based company, said in an emailed statement. They “had no knowledge that an intrusion had occurred at the time.”
I call bovine excrement. It appears that there needs to be deep investigations of Equifax. People should be losing their jobs and possibly criminal indictments.

This is the THIRD breach allowed by Equifax or one of its subsidiaries.

If you are concerned about your data security you should be following Brian Krebs website.
