Hi

 

I thought I posted this topic earlier but can't seem to find it.

 

I wondered what people thought about the tremendous security breach and hacking of Equifax in the US

 

Although I don't think it afffects NZ people's information, Equifax in the past have had class action law suits against them for privacy issues.

 

I received the CompTIA smartbrief, with a link to the latest hack.

 

Credit reporting is unregulated in NZ and Equifax bought Veda out.

 

Xero do partner with Equifax and I understand they are attending a meeting in the US about the hack.
