Security Expert Bruce Schneier Weighs In on the Equifax Breach

Back in October MPG discussed the heinous Equifax security breach.

I recently read in the WSJ that the Equifax CEO doesnn’t know to whether the information on you and me Equifax sells is encrypted or not. You cannot make this stuff up! That guy should be fired for incompetence immediately.

Bruce Schneier’s testimony is jaw-droppingly disturbing, in that a company like Equifax was so lax in its security. MPG insists again on the corporate death penalty. There should be zero tolerance for any company profiting from private information to put 145+ million in harm’s way. Or 1 million or 1 thousand.

Security expert Bruce Schneier testified before the the House Energy and Commerce committee on the Equifax hack. Video and written testimony in essence says that the Equifax breach put all exposed at risk of identity theft and was completely Equifax’s fault. Further, there are other data brokers out there with similar information who are also at risk in the future and the current regulatory environment is insufficient to the task. “All at risk” means 145+ million people.
