Canada’s Privacy Commissioner Launches Probe Into The Pwnage Of Equifax

The hits keep on coming for Equifax. Canada’s Privacy Commissioner has launched an investigation into the epic hack that has put the personal info of millions of people at risk. Not much is said in the release that the Privacy Commissioner put out. But it does have some interesting facts in it:

  • Equifax has committed to notifying all impacted Canadians in writing as soon as possible. The company will also offer free credit monitoring to those individuals.
  • The company is still working to determine the number of Canadians affected by this incident. At this point in time, it is not clear that the affected data was limited to Canadians with U.S. dealings.

The key thing is that the investigation is a priority for the Privacy Commissioner. That’s not good if you’re Equifax because Canada’s privacy laws actually have some teeth to them. Thus I am hoping that Equifax will get some of the punishment that it deserves.
