What happened with the breach?
Mid-May through July Equifax was breached. During this time hackers found names, birth dates, addresses, Social Security numbers, and in some cases driver’s license numbers. Credit card numbers were also taken for around 209,000 victims. There were also 182,000 people with dispute documents including personal information.
Equifax is one of three nationwide credit reporting companies; they supply credit information to lenders, insurers, creditors, and other businesses to evaluate applications for credit, insurance, employment, or renting.

What can they do to help for the future?
Get a credit report.
Free credit reports are available once a year from Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion, through AnnualCreditReport.com. Look for unusual activity. If there are charges or a credit card you don’t recognize you may want to visit IdentiyTheft.gov to find out what to do.
A credit freeze may be another great option.
