Re: If 148 million customer records can be nabbed

But the security team sent an e-mail to everyone! Two days too late to stop the breach... And apparently never followed up.

And the person responsible didn't respond! Fire them!!!

Meanwhile, the larger security screw up (i.e. no security monitoring for 19 months, no controls to ensure the monitoring was working as required and no testing to verify the monitoring plus the tesing they did do to verify server compliance was insufficient to detect non-compliance) appears to have resulted in no action. I'm assuming working in Equifax IT security primarily involves coating ones self in teflon.
