Equifax operates in 17 countries to meet the needs of our consumer and business customers around the world. With respect to servicing U.S. consumers, we utilize Equifax personnel inside and outside the United States, and supplement Equifax personnel with the assistance of third-party providers where needed. Whether the personnel are Equifax employees or not, we work with partners who are leaders in their field. All are given the same training and continuous monitoring to ensure they maintain the rigorous standards Equifax expects of all personnel who handle consumer data.
Regardless of where our personnel are located, by law all must adhere to the same level of security procedures, standards and technology established in the U.S. in compliance with the requirements of the Fair Credit Reporting Act, and the extensive data security requirements imposed as a result of the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, as well as the laws and regulations of the countries in which we operate.
On Data Safeguarding

As a result, Equifax maintains a highly sophisticated data information network that includes the most advanced security, protections and redundancies of any network in the world. In addition, Equifax is considered a leader in data leakage technology prevention, and owns numerous data and information patents, including what is considered the premier patent on data leakage/fraud prevention.
