Running head: [SHORTENED TITLE UP TO 50 CHARACTERS]1Written Assignment OneUniversity of the PeopleThe Equifax data breach was a big news story when it happened in 2017. Unfortunately,the court ruled that no wrongdoing was made by Equifax (Equifax data breach settlement: Am iaffected?). This paper will go more in depth about legal and ethical issues that Equifax was facedwith.One issue that I see that is a legal compliance issue is the fact that this information wasmade known to stockholders and they sold off their stock before it hit the general population.That means that they profited off of insider information, so they had an advantage overeverybody else. Since they were able to sell off their stock before the issues hit the news, theydidn’t lose out on any money when the story broke and the stock value dropped. One way thatEquifax acted ethically and with personal integrity was that they offered credit monitoring andidentity theft protection after the data breach.
