Several regulators have promptly announced investigations into the circumstances surrounding the Equifax breach. The New York Attorney General was the first to announce his office was launching an inquiry.  Since then, the FTC announced it was also conducting an investigation and the Massachusetts Attorney General brought an enforcement suit against Equifax alleging that the company knew about the vulnerabilities but failed to secure its systems.  It is almost a near certainty that more regulators have or will open their own inquiries as more becomes known about the Equifax breach in the coming weeks and months.
