Re: Trading stocks
@Dr.T: To be fair, and to say nothing of self-dealing (which is a different, albeit related, matter entirely), there are some economists that have touted the theory that insider trading is good for markets and should be legalized as such -- because the immediate effect it has on market value allows information to reach investors more quickly. There is some good debate on this issue.

Re: And this needs to be a RULE?????
This is part of the problem of being a company on the public stock exchange. Short-term-gain investors have motives and goals that are completely contrary to long-term organizational goals. And yet trying to please short-term investors is usually a failing strategy.

What the heck??
Why does this need to be a rule?? It should be obvious that they need to disclose risks such as this! Cybersecurity is something that has to be taken seriously. I think that's just as serious as hiring an emergency locksmith service when you need it.

Trading stocks
execs can't trade stocks if they have unannounced information on a security breach This is good I think. It should involve not only security breaches but all other things that can give advantages to execs.

Equifax C-suite may be overlooking things, lower layer roles still have major roles to play, it the could not secure the network they should resign to avoid responsibility.

Re: And this needs to be a RULE?????
the C-Suite has zero understanding of what a threat can do I would say they actually know what is happening, they may just hold it to themsleve to use it as a leverage.

And this needs to be a RULE?????
COMMON SENSE really.  Businesses should be open and forthcoming about events like this but because it is BAD news (depress shareholder value) and because the C-Suite has zero understanding of what a threat can do (save depress shareholder value) ... IT is encouraged to hide, sweep issues under the rug, deny and let the C-Suite blame it (as Equifax did) one ONE, JUST ONE, IT worker who has ( of course ) been discharged (thereby saving shareholder value).  THEN in a few months the truth comes out and all hell breaks loose, depressing (dramatically) shareholder value even more than had they been honest about it in the first place.
