ICBA's Statement on Equifax Security Breach - Equifax Security Breach

Equifax has established a dedicated website, www.equifaxsecurity2017.com, to help consumers determine if their information has been potentially compromised and to sign up for credit file monitoring and identity theft protection. It is recommended by industry experts that consumers freeze their credit files at each of the major credit bureaus to prevent unauthorized accounts from being opened.
