Speaking at a U.S. Senate Budget Committee Hearing, Acting Director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Mick Mulvaney said his agency is continuing its investigation into the Equifax data breach, The Wall Street Journal reports. “I can tell you, Senator, there has been no change in the position from the previous leadership of the CFPB regarding Equifax,” Mulvaney said. The acting director’s statement comes after reports the CFPB was pulling back in its investigation of the credit monitoring firm’s data breach and marks the first public confirmation of the agency’s continued investigation into the cyberattack. Meanwhile, a federal judge named more than two dozen attorneys to head the litigation against Equifax over the breach. (Registration may be required to access this story.)
