Equifax breach worsens, sparking more concerns about consumers' data

Security experts have voiced their concern about the worsening scale of the data breach.

Tom Kemp, CEO of identity and access management specialist Centrify, described the 147.9 million affected consumers as an “alarming” number.

“Despite an increase in security investments, breaches continue to rise," Kemp said in an email to Fox News. "The fact is, four out of five breaches (including those experienced by Equifax, Yahoo!, Uber, HBO, and more) exploit compromised identities, stolen passwords or privileged access.”
