ROYAL OAK – Cyber security pro Dan Lohrmann explores the Equifax data breech, and explores stories that some Equifax executives sold stock before disclosing the hack. When the news of the hack – impacting more than 140 million people – was disclosed also is questionable. The news was posted during Hurricane Harvey when it devastated Houston.
More troubling is who has this data and how will they use it? Nation states – read Russians – are suspected. Now there is talk that the financial reporting industry may be forced to stop using social security numbers to track consumer finance data. Lawsuits are flying. Hearings are scheduled on Capitol Hill.
