Dr. Thomas Holt was quoted in a recent Women’s Health online article entitled, “You Should Actually Be Pretty Worried About the Equifax Data Breach“. “Data breaches happen so often, but the main thing people should keep in mind is that you can’t have breach fatigue,” says Dr. Holt. “Your information may get used and it may not—but you need to be aware and watch what’s happening.”
