Equifax is facing a towering pile of class action law suits

Remember how deposed Equifax CEO Rick Smith got trotted around Capitol Hill to have his wrist metaphorically slapped by several congressional committees following what security journalist Brian Krebs so memorably referred to as the “dumpster fire” of a breach?

…and remember how we told you not to hold your breath with regards to real reform in the data brokerage industry? After all, in spite of congressional members saying that the company’s pre- and post-breach actions/inactions “smelled really bad,” there was zero talk of serving Equifax execs with subpoenas.
