Names, Addresses and Social Security Numbers Breached....How reckless can a company be with our DATA?
After the close of trading on September 7, 2017, Equifax disclosed that its databases had been breached between May and June 2017, that hackers had gained access to Company data that potentially compromised sensitive information for 143 million American consumers, including Social Security numbers, credit card numbers and driver's license numbers. Equifax discovered the breach on July 29, 2017, but had waited until after the close of trading nearly six weeks later to disclose the breach to consumers and Equifax's investors.
Regulatory filings show on August 3, 2017, just days after the July 29 breach discovery, Chief Financial Officer John Gamble sold shares worth $946,374 and Joseph Loughran, president of U.S. information solutions, exercised options to dispose of stock worth $584,099.
