If you have a credit score, its highly likely your personal information is already exposed. That’s not just because of the recent data breach of Equifax, one of the three major credit reporting agencies. According to Identity Theft Resource Center, a non-profit to help victims of identity theft, the first half of this year has seen a 30 percent increase in data breaches in the U-S compared to the same time period last year. Data breaches generally reveal information such as names, credit cards, Social Security numbers, birth dates, addresses, driver’s licenses, etc. So how protected is your data? According to attorney Chi Chi Wu at the National Consumer Law Center, a consumer advocacy group, not very. Wu sits down with Soledad O’Brien to discuss what needs to happen after your data has been stolen and how to ensure better security in the future.
