Here is Senator Elizabeth Waren's perspective about the equifax saga;
"Equifax did a terrible job protecting your data because they didn’t have a reason to care.

We need to give consumers control of their own data – and we need to clean house and impose real financial penalties when corporate executives fail to protect it."
