Sen. Sherrod Brown Pushes For Protection For Equifax Breach Victims

The breach, which was disclosed last week, includes individuals' Social Security numbers and other sensitive information that could be used by hackers to gain access to someone's bank accounts or tax returns.

Many Claremore citizens have found their names among those impacted in the Equifax security breach. A security freeze (also known as a "credit freeze") locks your credit file so that no one can see your credit report or credit score unless you lift the freeze. This prohibits a credit reporting agency from releasing any information from your credit report without written authorization and makes it harder for an identity thief to access credit in your name.

"If you have someone's valid information, say, I want a new phone or I'd like a new credit card- that you're going to pay for - I can go out and fill out that information and just say, 'oh, by the way, I moved, I have a new address, '" Cronin said. That means that if you're in the market for a home or new vehicle, a credit freeze can be quite the headache. The site will tell you if you've been affected by this breach.

You can always view your credit report for free once a year at AnnualCreditReport.com or by calling 877-322-8228.

"The second thing you really need to do is to start monitoring your credit more". Victims of Identity Theft can place fraud alerts and credit freezes, as well as obtain copies of their credit report, for free in Colorado. He also said other companies offer similar services.

"Attacks start out very small and then they escalate and in this case probably one of the largest breaches we have seen in the country", says Cronin.

This data breach is so severe that the criminals will be able to use this information for decades, so if you're getting a message from Equifax that your request can't be processed at this time - please keep trying!

Experts said Equifax will likely pay to freeze your credit at their agency, but that isn't where you should stop. Enter your last name and the last six digits of your Social Security Number.

Equifax established a website to help people find out if their information was compromised and help protect that information.

The Canadian Automobile Association (CAA) says it was partnered with Equifax on the auto organization's identity protection program.
