Even Auntie Maxine knows, we’ll need more than outrage to prevent another Equifax
With her frequent scowl and no-nonsense tweets, California Rep. Maxine Waters is usually outraged about something. But she was right to really zero in – “Auntie Maxine”-style – on Equifax, the credit rating company that exposed the personal information of 143 million Americans, and then waited a month and a half to say anything.
“This hack into sensitive information compiled and maintained by Equifax is one of the largest data breaches in our nation’s history and someone has to be held accountable,” she said last Thursday, making the Los Angeles Democrat among the first in Congress to call out the company.
