In yesterday’s keynote conversation, ISACA CEO Matt Loeb wondered who in the crowd was affected by the Equifax hack: “Really? With 143 million records, I’d have thought every hand would go up.” Truly, it was a big deal. The CEO resigned, the interim CEO used The Wall Street Journal to apologize to the world, and there’s talk of Congress passing new legislation to ward off this sort of thing happening again. And yet the IRS told reporters yesterday it didn’t think the breach would have much impact on tax fraud — they figure most of that info is already out there. So, what does it all mean, and what can we learn from Equifax’s breach and response? The Privacy Advisor Editor Angelique Carson, CIPP/US, talked to UnitedLex CPO Jason Straight, CIPP/US, about that very topic for the Privacy Advisor Podcast just after the news initially hit. Hit the “Read More” link to listen to their conversation, then hit round two, today, when the pair record a live podcast to update everyone on the latest news and findings, at 9 a.m. this morning.
