Congress grills former Equifax, Yahoo CEOs over identity data breaches
09 November, 2017, 01:26 | Author: Valerie Burke
While testifying to lawmakers on Wednesday, former Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer apologized for the Yahoo hacks and claims that no company is immune from them. Mayer says Yahoo, which originally said only 1 billion accounts were affected, didn't find out about the hack until it got data from the government in 2016 and still hasn't figured out how it happened, though she says Russian intelligence officers have launched attacks on Yahoo systems.
But under questioning from the Senate Commerce Committee, she also admitted that Yahoo still doesn't know exactly how hackers managed to steal the usernames and passwords of all of its registered users.
"A combination cooperation between public-private to address this issue is needed", said former Equifax CEO Richard Smith. It's also implemented new measures to protect the affected accounts.
"To this day, as I understand it, we still have not been able to identify the intrusion that led to that theft", Mayer said during a congressional hearing on Wednesday. Richard Blumenthal of CT says enforcing punishments for data breaches on executives like Mayer could motivate companies to protect users' data.

Indeed, the former CEO said, much of the facts behind the breaches remain shrouded in mystery.
