Congressional Report on the 2017 Equifax Data Breach - Schneier on Security
The US House of Representatives Committee on Oversight and Government Reform has just released a comprehensive report on the 2017 Equifax hack. It's a great piece of writing, with a detailed timeline, root cause analysis, and lessons learned. Lance Spitzner also commented on this.
Here is my testimony before before the House Subcommittee on Digital Commerce and Consumer Protection last November.

Equifax: A study in accountability but not authority responsibility - Help Net Security
A well-written counterpoint to the House report. Helps show why blame-and-shame isn't the whole story.

Scathing House Oversight report: Equifax data breach was “entirely preventable" • Fast Company
Melissa Locker:
<p>after a 14-month investigation, the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee has <a href="https://oversight.house.gov/wp-content/uploads/2018/12/Equifax-Report.pdf">issued a scathing 96-page report</a> saying the consumer credit reporting agency aggressively collected consumer data without taking the necessary steps to protect the trove of information. “Equifax… failed to implement an adequate security program to protect this sensitive data. As a result, Equifax allowed one of the largest data breaches in US history. Such a breach was entirely preventable,” the report says.

The report blames the breach on a series of failures, including “a culture of cybersecurity complacency,” outdated technology systems, and Equifax’s failure to patch a “known critical vulnerability.” The committee also noted the company’s failure to take appropriate measures to inform consumers about the breach and their options for protecting their data. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) tried to warn Equifax that this wouldn’t end well for them. The report comes as the company still faces a variety of class-action lawsuits over the breach and the FTC is still side-eyeing the company after publicly confirming it is investigating the data breach.</p>

Reached for a quote, Equifax said it wasn't fair that it didn't get time to review the report. But you know that this won't make the tiniest difference. They'll still keep grabbing more data.
