As the leader in victim assistance in identity crime cases, the Identity Theft Resource Center is available to provide expert perspective on the potential impacts to consumers and the relevance of today’s announcement for those impacted by the 2017 breach.

Additionally, ITRC produced a report on the impacts the consumers felt over the course of the year after the event. The AftermathTM: Equifax, One Year Later states the 81 percent of respondents experience anxiety or worry as a result of the event.
