Trans Union Data Breach Exposes Consumers to Identity Theft

November 9, 2005 - A desktop computer containing the names, Social Security Numbers, and other personal information on more than 3,600 consumers was stolen from a Trans Union sales office last month. The theft highlights the need for regulation of large data brokers, which have exposed millions of American’s to identity theft over the past year. It also showcases the need for Congress to leave in place strong state laws that currently require consumer notification when this type of theft occurs.
