In 2017, sensitive information from 140 million consumers in the United States was stolen as part of the Equifax data breach. We see this happen in different companies for example Yahoo and most recently Uber. Tarah Wheeler, Cybersecurity fellow at New America explains what the Equifax breach was, its impact, and why the breach wasn’t handled correctly. Tarah explained how to set up an effective incident response and incident detection system. We also talked about incident response teams and what they’re in charge of.
