NACA submitted a letter to the U.S. Senate Banking Committee to share its views for the Oct. 4 hearing on the Equifax cybersecurity breach. The Equifax breach is an object lesson on the consequences of a powerful entity that lacks adequate controls and incentive to act responsibly and in good faith in the marketplace. We urge the Committee to assert its intention to protect the tens of millions of impacted consumers across the country by supporting effective policies that: protect their personal information; restore and preserve their legal rights – such as the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s arbitration rule; and afford them meaningful remedies to make them whole when they are wronged.
