FAIRBANKS, Alaska (KTVF) - Alaskan Attorney General Treg Taylor, along with the attorneys general of 39 other states, have reached a settlement with Experian Data Corp.
The entity was being sued for not notifying consumers of an identity thief retrieving people’s sensitive data from one of their databases.
Out of a $1 million dollar settlement, the state is expected to receive $20 thousand dollars.
While Taylor acknowledges this amount is not very high, he said, “The wrongdoing is worth the pursuit.”
He added that warning consumers of the exposure of their personal information is a duty for corporations.
