Equifax Put a Music Major In Charge of Security Before Breach on 143 Million Americans
Equifax Credit Rating Services announced last week a data breach on 143 million customers.
The ratings company said criminals exploited a US website application to access files mid-May and June of this year. The thieves obtained consumers’ names, Social Security numbers, birth dates, addresses and, in some cases, driver’s license numbers.
The company said 143 million files were shared on the dark web following the data breach.
The Equifax Chief Information Security Officer Susan Mauldin. She has been with the company since 2013.
Susan is a music major.
Susan graduated with a music degree in music from the University on Georgia and holds a Masters of Music Composition.
Maudlin’s original Linkedin page was made private after the Equifax breach last week.

Equifax and Maudlin failed to apply a patch that Apache had made available 2-months before the breach along with proof that the flaw was already under mass attack by hackers.
