This is the October 25, 2017 hearing titled "Examining the Equifax Data Breach, Continuation," held before the House Committee on Financial Services. From the opening statement of Ted Budd: "It is particularly troubling that since the massive breach, Equifax has yet to send an executive to testify before Congress who actually has the ability to examine all the issues with our broken credit reporting system. [...] Equifax has badly mishandled virtually every aspect of this breach. They failed to update a known software vulnerability for several weeks. They failed to properly notify law enforcement agencies, as required by many State data breach laws and regulations, and even in announcing to the public about the breach, failed to provide consumers with the tools they needed to safeguard against identity theft and other harm that could be caused by the unauthorized exposure of their sensitive financial and personally identifiable information for free." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Sara Cable, Mike Litt, Kathleen McGee, Laura M. Moy, and Chi Chi Wu.
