On September 7, 2017, Equifax announced it had suffered a cybersecurity incident potentially impacting
143+ million US consumers. In the immediate aftermath of the breach announcement, the CEO, CIO, and
CSO retired and a SVP was fired; consumers were worried and confused; tech journalists were critical; and
politicians indignant. Now, 18 months later, there is a great deal more information related to Equifax
activities before and after the breach available via a GAO report released in September 2018 and
congressional report released in December 2018. These details allow for a detailed examination and
analysis of Equifax’s cybersecurity policy, processes, personnel management, tools, etc., which makes it
extremely useful as a case study.
