My research paper is on EQUIFAX DATA BREACH
For the final project, you are required to identify and research a publicized security breach that occurred within the last five years. You will research, analyze, and report on what aspects of perimeter and other security went wrong, what industry accepted protocols were not followed, and the short and long term impact on the company and the industry as a whole.
You should research and identify one publicized breach that occurred within the last five years. Your research on this breach should include but is not limited to:
Business name and history (short version)
Hardware/software/applications involved (if available)
Timing (Was this relevant, as with the Target breach?)
Amount of data?
o How was this exfiltrated? (This may not be available.)
• Potential Effects to the Persons Involved
For example, credit monitoring, fraud, and so forth
• Impact to the Business

Civil (commercial entities [e.g., banks] suing)
Civil (government [e.g., FTC with Wyndham Hotel lawsuit])
• Lessons Learned
