Equifax Data Breach

Equifax Data BreachAs you may know, millions of Americans had their personal information exposed by the recent Equifax® data breach. Equifax states they found no evidence of unauthorized activity on its core consumer credit reporting database, other information was lost. According to Equifax, the breach lasted from mid-May through July. The hackers accessed people’s names, Social Security numbers, birth dates, addresses and, in some instances, driver's license numbers. This is the sensitive information fraudsters need to commit identity theft.

Check with Equifax to find out if you've been impacted

Whether or not you were impacted, here are some things to keep in mind when it comes to actively protecting yourself in situations like this.
