DALLAS, Sept. 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- AT&T today made the following comments related to the announcement by Equifax that some of their customer data security measures recently were compromised:
"The security of our customers' personal information is paramount to us. For that reason, our security team has been assessing Equifax's data breach since it was announced. There was no breach of AT&T systems or the data we maintain and the perpetrators targeted only Equifax systems. However, we understand that the impacts include current and former consumer and business customers of AT&T.
In light of this, we encourage our customers to take advantage of the steps that Equifax is taking to mitigate this breach and to advise and assist its customers. Current and former customers of AT&T should start by visiting www.equifaxsecurity2017.com to confirm if they are potentially affected and to sign up for credit file monitoring and identity theft protection.
We will continue to work closely with Equifax as their assessment progresses."
