Equifax Security Breach
You’ve probably heard about the recent security breach at Equifax, one of the biggest credit reporting agencies. It’s estimated 143 million people have been affected. So as stewards, what do we do?
If you haven’t done so already, the most practical step to protect your identity is to initiate a credit freeze at each of the 3 credit reporting agencies.
This means nobody can access your credit information without your knowledge. You should also watch for any suspicious activity with all your accounts.And remember – “God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and a sound mind.”
We should of course be careful our personal information at all times.
Remember, Earth is not our final destination. We won’t be able to take the things of this world to Heaven with us anyway, so we don’t need to be afraid.
