Fallout from the Equifax Security Breach

Like millions of Americans, I was shocked to read that Equifax had suffered a massive data breach. It is now being reported that more than 145 million people may be impacted, including five million Georgians and five million North Carolinians. Given the pervasiveness of our Personally Identifiable Information (so-called PII), it is more important than ever to minimize how this information may be used in the event of a breach.
