It has been one year since the Equifax breach was first disclosed to the public. It has been one year and six weeks since Equifax first became aware of the breach.

The delay in the public announcement of the breach after executives became aware may have proven just as damaging as the delay in installing a patch for the known vulnerability that led to the breach itself. The repercussions of the failure to communicate the breach is just part of our cover story in the latest issue of (ISC)²’s member magazine, InfoSecurity Professional. The article, “One Year Later” is a retrospective on the lessons learned from the breach that exposed the personal information of as many as 147 million Americans.

Security experts provide their recommendations related to technology, training, policy and planning in the article in an attempt to avoid a repeat event. Increases in third-party assessments and crisis planning are just a few of the emerging trends seen in other organizations following the incident.

(ISC)² members can access the magazine online in the member portal and earn two CPEs for reading the issue and passing a quiz on the content. Two Group A CPEs will be automatically submitted on your behalf. The issue will be available for non-members later this year.
