Iowa Will See $1.3M in Equifax Settlement
Iowa is one of 50 states to reach a settlement with Equifax over its data breach in 2017.
It found the company failed to have a reasonable security system to prevent the largest breach ever of consumer data according to KCCI.com.
As part of the settlement, attorneys general from 50 states secured a $425 million restitution fund for those impacted, and a $175 million payment to states.
Iowa's share is just over $1.3 million. The money will go into the Consumer Education and Litigation Fund.
Equifax has also agreed to make changes to how it stores and protects information.
