Richard Smith, the former Equifax chief executive who led the company during its massive breach and botched response, is getting a nearly $1 million raise for his work last year, the company said Monday.

Smith, who resigned in September, will bring home $15.7 million in total compensation for 2017 — up 4.9 percent from the previous year, according to the credit bureau’s annual report.
