Equifax results comment from cyber security consultant Coalfire PDF Print E-mail
Friday, 10 November 2017
Andy Barratt,  UK managing director of Coalfire, said:  “The dip in Equifax’s third quarter results has gone against the early predictions of some financial experts, but it’s unlikely to be a surprise for members of the cyber security community.

“These figures are a good example of the hugely damaging impact a cyber-attack can have for a business. Yes, it can result in data loss and yes, it will affect operations in the short term. But the reputational and financial implications, as Equifax has seen, can also be incredibly significant.

“Equifax’s third quarter results should be viewed as a stern reminder that cyber security needs to be a fundamental part of business strategy, not an afterthought simply to comply with regulation.”
