So – Your Data Was Probably Breached At Equifax. Now What?

Well, what can we say about the Equifax data breach that allowed hackers to gain access to the personal information for 143 million Americans?   There are hundreds of posts and articles out there (probably thousands) covering the story from every conceivable angle.  We will try to sum it all up for you, cover all of the pertinent information and then provide you with some recommendations for doing damage control and protecting yourself from identity theft.  We're all in the same boat - my data was compromised, too.

So, what do we know at this point in time?

​There is so much more information coming out about this, but in the end, you should keep a sharp eye on your credit accounts, sign up for EquiFax's free identity protection program if you think your data was compromised, and never, ever trust EquiFax, again - not that you probably ever agreed for them to have your data stored on their servers in the first place.  

Sadly, EquiFax will probably never be punished properly for this gross negligence that will disrupt the lives of thousands - if not millions - of American citizens:  http://www.chicagotribune.com/business/columnists/reed/ct-equifax-reprieve-robert-reed-0914-biz-20170913-column.html

As always, we will tell everyone to Be Careful Out There, but in cases like this, there really wasn't anything we could have done to protect ourselves.
