"A combination cooperation between public-private to address this issue is needed", said former Equifax CEO Richard Smith.
The 42-year-old, who testified before the Senate Commerce Committee on Capitol Hill in Washington on Wednesday, said the thefts occurred during her almost five-year tenure and she wants to 'sincerely apologize to each and every one of our users'. She said even "robust" defences are not enough to defend against state-sponsored attacks and compared the fight with hackers to an "arms race". Roger Wicker, R-Miss., asked all of those testifying, including the interim and former CEOs of Equifax, Paulino de Rego Barros Jr. and Richard Smith, as well as Entrust Datacard CEO Todd Wilkinson, if they took issue with Nelson's contention that a "mere company" can not withstand persistent attacks from state-backed hackers without the help of the National Security Agency. Mayer later said under questioning that she did not know if Russians were responsible for the 2013 breach, but earlier spoke of state-sponsored attacks.
Barros told the committee he has focused on improving customer service and revising the company's structure so that the company's chief security officer reports directly to him. While the breach had been previously disclosed, the count of victims is triple Yahoo's December 2016 estimate that 1 billion accounts were compromised (see Yahoo: 3 Billion Accounts Breached in 2013).
He also said the company is on schedule to release a computer app in January that will allow consumers to lock and unlock their credit data.

Senator John Thune, a Republican who chairs the Commerce Committee, asked Mayer on Wednesday why it took three years to identify the data breach or properly gauge its size. But she also said the U.S. government has to do more to empower law enforcement to pursue and stop hackers, especially the state-sponsored kind. Bill Nelson (D-Fla.) said, "but when".
"Massive data breaches have touched the vast majority of American consumers", said Thune.
During her tenure as CEO, she said, Yahoo roughly doubled its internal security staff and made significant investments in its leadership and team.
