UK financial regulator confirms it is probing Equifax mega-breach



"the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), which could fine the firm or revoke its right to operate in the UK"

Yeah, but in all likelihood they'll issue a light 'slap on the wrist' fine at most, and Equifeck will be able to continue as normal.

I hope the investigation includes exactly how data stored in the US up to 2016 due to a 'process failure' that was supposedly fixed came to still be there in 2017. If I receive anything in the post from Equifeck to say I'm affected, my local MP will get a letter highlighting that very point - and I'd urge anyone else affected to do the same.
