World news about the incident

As Equifax is based in the U.S., they’ve felt the full force of the legal system over there, which includes a recent report conducted by a Senate subcommittee which is said to been highly critical of the credit-referencing agency.

In perhaps more frustrating news, Equifax has reportedly told Canadians that they’re not doing enough to protect themselves recently as well. This is after the fact that their own cybersecurity flaws were at the heart of this very preventable breach. Not only could a simple security patch have been applied to resolve a known security problem, but the ongoing vulnerability wasn’t identified for weeks.

According to media reports, Equifax Canada suggested that some people are not keeping their computers up-to-date with the latest software. There was the suggestion of complacency, which given how the Equifax data breach happened in the first place is quite an ironic statement.

Although people should always do all they can to protect themselves, hearing this kind of advice from an organisation at the centre of one of the biggest ever data breach incident has raised some eyebrows.
