Hensarling: Committee Will Hold Hearing on Troubling Equifax Data Breach


WASHINGTON, Sep 8 -

House Financial Services Committee Chairman Jeb Hensarling (R-TX) said his committee will hold a hearing on the Equifax data breach that has potentially compromised the personal information of roughly 143 million Americans.

“This is obviously a very serious and very troubling situation and our committee has already begun preparations for a hearing.  Large-scale security breaches are becoming all too common.  Every breach leaves consumers exposed and vulnerable to identity theft, fraud and a host of other crimes, and they deserve answers,” said Chairman Hensarling.

A date for the hearing will be announced at a later time.
