Protecting Your Personal Information After a Data Breach

A recent cyber attack at Equifax exposed the personal identifying information of as many as 143 million Americans. This egregious breach of consumer trust jeopardizes the economic security of your family and families across our state and country.

Michiganders like you who had your credit checked by Equifax in order to buy a car or a home, start a business, or even apply for a job, have now been exposed to scammers, identity thieves and cyber criminals who could exploit and ruin your good credit. I know you’re concerned about the security of your personal information, and I wanted to share important resources that can help you protect your data and prevent identity theft:

In the U.S. Senate, I am working to protect your credit and hold Equifax accountable. I called on the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to investigate Equifax’s security practices, and I am pleased to say the FTC is now examining this widespread data breach. 

You work so hard to build good credit and you deserve to have certainty that your personal information is safe and secure. I will continue to work on your behalf to uncover the root cause of this serious cybersecurity breach and determine the measures we need to take to protect Michigan consumers in the future. 

Thanks for reading,

Gary Peters
United States Senator for Michigan
