As many of you know, yesterday Equifax announced that from mid-May through to July, they experienced a cybersecurity breach that potentially impacted 143 million US consumers whose personal information was accessed and in some cases, credit card numbers and dispute documents were also accessed.  

The Equifax Security Breach is a reminder of how important it is to regularly monitor your credit and ensure you are protected. At LSI we recommend consumers use SmartCredit for ID protection. Their service also includes credit monitoring and the ability to order a 3 Bureau (Equifax, Experian and TransUnion) report without a hard inquiry.
