Equifax announced that an additional 2.4 million Americans were impacted by the data breach first disclosed in September 2017. The data stolen includes names and partial driver’s license numbers. Equifax will notify impacted customers and provide the same credit monitoring and identity theft protection services. The NJCCIC recommends those impacted by the Equifax breach take advantage of the credit and identity theft services offered and strongly consider placing a security freeze on their credit files in order mitigate the risk of identity theft and financial fraud.
