Leaked data includes names, birth dates, Social Security numbers, addresses and some driver's license numbers, CNBC reported. "That's the big stick consumers have, and companies have been taking it away". However, Equifax clarified that the arbitration clause refers to the Trusted ID product and not any lawsuits dealing with the data breach. "Enrolling in the free credit file monitoring and identity theft protection that we are offering as part of this cybersecurity incident does not waive any rights to take legal action", it said. Within four days of the hack, however, a number of high-up Equifax executives, including Equifax Chief Financial Officer John Gamble; President for USA information solutions Joseph Loughran; and President of workforce solutions Rodolfo Ploder sold shares at high prices.

Equifax is hardly the first company to be hit hard by hackers: Target, Home Depot, and Yahoo! all within the past four years. If you didn't know, Equifax is one of the largest USA based credit reporting agencies that collect and analyze detailed records of financial data for records of a wide range of consumers worldwide. Its stock price fell as much as 17.8 percent on Friday, wiping out more than $3 billion of market value. But that's when the company became aware it had been breached. However, if hackers have all of an individual's personal information, they also have all the information needed to unfreeze an account. A freeze won't affect your credit score or report.
Lenders use Equifax information to determine risks in financing people's mortgages and credit cards. Some are considering Equifax's own credit monitoring service.
Equifax's ham-handed response is reviving calls to weed out mandatory arbitration from the finance industry. Use your smart phone as a secondary log-in to Equifax or any of your financial, social media or other accounts that are password-protected. As many Americans have learned from data breaches in the past, those are promises not always kept. Taking some or all of the steps above also can not fully guarantee that you will never experience any form of identity theft, but you will be more aware of potential problems before they become larger ones.
