The Complaint alleges that during the Class Period, Equifax issued materially false and/or misleading statements, and/or failed to disclose, that the Company failed to maintain proper security systems, controls and monitoring systems in place to protect its data systems and detect security breaches. On September 7, 2017, Equifax announced that its systems were hacked in a cybersecurity incident that may have affected about 143 million U.S. consumers. According to the Company, hackers accessed names, Social Security numbers, birth dates, addresses and driver’s license numbers. Hackers also accessed credit card numbers for about 209,000 consumers. Following this news, the Company’s stock price dropped materially, which caused investors harm.
