One of the largest credit reporting companies in the United States, Equifax, recently announced that its databases were breached in a massive cyber attack back in July. The hack compromised credit information for an estimated 145 million people; their social security numbers, addresses and driver's license numbers were taken.

Join me and State Attorney General Xavier Becerra tomorrow night at 7 p.m. to discuss the impacts of the Equifax data breach and how we can safeguard ourselves from future impacts.
