He likened it to a recent incident in Riviera Beach. There a ransomware attack was initiated when someone in the police department opened a phishing email, which then locked up the city’s online operations with encryption and led to a ransom payment of $600,000.

According to cybersecurity expert Brad Deflin, founder of Total Digital Security and a past speaker at AFP conferences and forums, letting the Equifax incident slide is particularly egregious. “Equifax took every opportunity to turn every one of these issues into profit-making and information gathering,” he said. “They even provided bad URLs for help websites that were also further exposed. And so to see the government relent and not use Equifax as an example to try to drive change is incredibly disappointing.”
