Former Equifax CEO says breach boiled down to one person not doing their job | TechCrunch

'Smith said when he started with Equifax 12 years ago there was no one in cybersecurity. '

'Now several top Equifax execs are being taken to task for failing to protect the information of millions of U.S. citizens. '

'Equifax since sent out a statement retracting that language and saying consumers could sue, which they have started to do. '

'However, a patch for that vulnerability had been available for months before the breach occurred. '

'Smith stepped down as CEO last week, shortly after the company’s chief security officer and chief information officer also exited the company. '
