LSC joins Equifax data breach lawsuit
NAPERVILLE, IL (February 7, 2018) — LSC and its affiliated credit union, Services Credit Union, have joined the Equifax class action lawsuit as party plaintiffs to help protect LSC’s customer credit unions from losses caused by the 2017 Equifax data breach.
“We at LSC are steadfast in our mission to hold Equifax accountable for this calamitous data breach,” said David Griffiths, COO of LSC. “More than 145 million American consumers have been impacted by Equifax’s blatant disregard of the US Department of Homeland Security’s warnings regarding a necessary security patch in Equifax’s software. Credit unions have been left to bear the cost of this carelessness, and it is our aim to alleviate that hardship.”
On October 4, 2017, a class action lawsuit was filed in federal court in Georgia by CUNA and several financial institutions against Equifax based on the data breach. LSC and SCU now join that lawsuit as plaintiffs. The complaint filed in that case can be accessed here.
