PA Looks To Amend Laws In Wake Of Equifax Breach

HARRISBURG (WSKG) — Several state lawmakers are introducing legislation to help people deal with situations in which their personal information is compromised.  The move comes after a massive security breach at credit reporting agency Equifax affected millions of Pennsylvanians.  The breach is the largest in the country’s history. In the Pennsylvania alone, more than five million people had information compromised–about three quarters of the commonwealth’s adult population. Attorney General Josh Shapiro launched an investigation soon after the breach was made public. The probe now includes 46 other states. He said it’s progressing quickly, and that “subpoenas have been issued, and we expect Equifax to begin producing documents very, very shortly.”
