Equifax Security Breach Update
Recently, Atlanta-based Equifax announced that unauthorized individuals gained access to customer information stored in their database. The following information is provided by Equifax:
October 2nd, 2017 - Equifax Inc. announced today that the cybersecurity firm Mandiant has completed the forensic portion of its investigation of the cybersecurity incident disclosed on September 7 to finalize the consumers potentially impacted.
With respect to potentially impacted Canadian citizens, the company previously had stated that there may have been up to 100,000 Canadian citizens impacted, but that number was preliminary and did not materialize. The completed review subsequently determined that personal information of approximately 8,000 Canadian consumers was impacted. In addition, it also was determined that some of the consumers with affected credit cards announced in the company's initial statement are Canadian. The company will mail written notice to all of the potentially impacted Canadian citizens.
