The SecureWorld News Team talked with Shawn Tuma about many of the lessons that can be learned from the Equifax data breach and winnowed it down to the following 3 takeaways that are discussed more thoroughly in the article:
- We need a uniform national breach notification law in the United States.
- When it comes to data breach response, “[i]t’s not about what you do right, as much as what you do not do wrong.”
- A mega breach keeps going, and going, and going.
