The Equifax data breach forever changed the landscape of consumer data protection. For consumers, it was the first time that a breach exposed at one time essentially all the components an identity thief needs to commit a variety of crimes. This webinar approaches the topic through the lens of what a thief can do with personally identifiable information and recommended actions to reduce the risks of becoming a victim.
