Stolen information? Lost identity? The data breach that hit Equifax is the most recent reminder that a data breach can happen to any company. If you were one of the 145.5 million people who had their personal information compromised in Equifax’s data breach, you are probably in the midst of dealing with chaos and paying for costly help to ensure you take the steps you need to recover properly now and prevent future headaches. Some of the steps include:
- Be aware & take precaution
