Despite all the talk, no action by Congress on the Equifax Breach

The massive Equifax breach which generated a lot of media coverage and angry statements from Congress has amounted to nothing – nada, zilch, zero.

…the aftermath of the breach played out like a familiar script: white-hot, bipartisan outrage, followed by hearings and a flurry of proposals that went nowhere. As is often the case, Congress gradually shifted to other priorities..

As long as we have technology illiterates running the country, we are going to keep paying the price with our data, privacy and eventually our democracy.
