We take the security of personal data held by organisations very seriously and are addressing the Equifax data breach and its consequences for UK customers. The National Cyber Security Centre and partners including the National Crime Agency, Information Commissioner and Financial Conduct Authority, are all engaged with Equifax to examine this incident and any appropriate action will be taken.
