Social insecurity: You and me and the Equifax breach

Equifax's Colossal Error Not Patching Apache Struts Flaw

The Federal Trade Commission said it is investigating the data breach at Equifax that exposed the personal information of 143 million Americans, including Social Security numbers. It was one of the recommendations made after the Equifax breach.

Equifax discovered the hack July 29 but waited until last Thursday to warn consumers that criminals exploited a USA website application to access files between mid-May and July of this year.

The Canadian Press made multiple calls as consumers to Equifax Canada's customer service line and was told that consumers whose credit files were not checked outside of Canada are unlikely to be part of any breach.

Terri Englishbee described the feeling finding out her personal information has been compromised in the recent Equifax data breach. Look for unusual accounts or activities that may indicate identity theft. The company has lost $6 billion in shareholder value, about one-third of its total value, since disclosing the breach on September 7.

If you decide against a credit freeze, consider placing a fraud alert on your files. Within two weeks, you will receive a letter with a unique PIN to unlock and relock your credit, he said.

The Commerce website offers practical tips on what you can do to prevent identity theft and protect your sensitive personal information from being misused.

"It is a little frustrating because, like, I only have one credit card and I'm just now starting to build my credit and just to think that I've been putting all that work into building my credit and it's nothing really I can do about it", said Campbell. If the information can't be explained, you will need to call the creditors involved and report the crime to your local police or sheriff's office.

Pay extra attention to your bank statements, credit card statements, and even medical or insurance bills to see if any unknown or unusual charges appear.

But are there steps you can take to protect your information?

A lot of people are choosing to "freeze" their credit report.
