U.S. Senator Presses Experian for Info on T-Mobile Breach
The top ranking Democrat on the U.S. Senate Banking Committee pressed data collection and credit firm Experian for information on the recent data breach that exposed the personal details of around 15 million T-Mobile customers, hinting that Experian’s credit monitoring and identity theft resolution services should be questioned for effectiveness.
Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) wrote to the company, “Experian has files on more than 220 million people. Protection of this information is of the utmost importance, especially because the scope of the information is vast and virtually no consumer can apply for credit without entering your system.
