Experian catches ’em, but how do you prevent ’em?
I just read yet another breach report Experian filed with the New Hampshire Attorney General’s Office. The sequence generally goes like this:
- Someone acquires the Experian login for one of Experian’s clients.
- The login is misused to access credit report and info on people.
- The breach is discovered.
- Login is changed.
- The individuals are notified and offered credit monitoring.
This time it was Iowa Telecommunications whose login wound up in the wrong hands.
