statistics, it is evident that Equifax should be using the most top-notch security platform to secure their data. Nevertheless, Equifax never took appropriate measures to safeguard their data as they should have ensured that their information systems have multiple layers of controls. Such measure would ensure that the hackers would not have an easy time to getting information about the consumers. Equifax has taken various measures to curb the security threat they encountered. The Company has reported the matter to the required security agencies and investigations are underway. Furthermore, Equifax has gone the extra mile to hire a cybersecurity firm to conduct an in-depth analysis of the consumers who might have been affected. A website has also been created for clients to check if their personal information has been comprised in anyway whatsoever. If a client notices or suspects that their information has been comprised, the company has recommended that the matter should be reported to a security agency or request the account to be frozen.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
