From the opening statement of Robert E. Latta: "One month ago, this subcommittee was the first to hear testimony from former Equifax CEO [chief executive officer] Richard Smith about how his company's failure to protect against a known security data vulnerability led to the exposure of over 145 million Americans' sensitive information. Today, we continue our investigation into the Equifax breach. We will focus on: helping the public get answers; how is the industry responding to this breach; what the industry response has been to this breach; has the cybersecurity landscape changed as a result of the breach; and what laws and regulations govern the protection of individuals' information collected by businesses." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Francis Creighton, James Norton, Bruce Schneier, and Anne P. Fortney.
