Class-action lawsuit filed in NH over Equifax breach

Class-action lawsuit filed in NH over Equifax breach”

"As consumers decide how to protect themselves moving forward from this widespread data breach, the updated information now available should help in making informed decisions", Schmidt said.

The lawsuit alleges that the data breach was a result of Equifax's failure to implement adequate security measures to safeguard people's information. Specifically, Equifax states, "to be as clear as possible, we will not apply any arbitration clause or class action waiver against consumers for claims related to the free products offered in response to the cybersecurity incident or for claims related to the cybersecurity incident itself". And Hill suggested Equifax's reaction was created to take advantage of consumer fears in the wake of the breach. Changing your passwords regularly will help prevent hackers from accessing your accounts in the future. "If you have any credit cards on file or loyalty points, they can monetize them". If consumers wish to limit how credit reporting agencies use this information - such as by placing a credit freeze on their credit file - they often have to pay a fee to the agency, even though consumers never gave the agency permission to collect their data in the first place. It does not cost anything to permanently lift your security freeze.

Consumers and retailers are likely to be dealing with the aftermath of the major hack at credit reporting firm Equifax. While it doesn't lock down your credit like a freeze does, a fraud alert does require credit agencies to take additional steps to confirm it's actually you opening credit in your name.
