GSA makes deals for credit protection services

In an effort to expedite the response to data breaches and lessen the cost for credit protection, the General Services Administration awarded blanket purchase agreements to three credit monitoring firms. Given the recent spate of data thefts that left several agencies scrambling to provide credit protection to potential victims, GSA officials said that having these contracts in place gives agencies one less thing to worry about in the event of a data breach.

GSA awarded the BPAs to Equifax Inc. of Atlanta, Experian Consumer Direct of Irvine, Calif., and Bearak Reports Inc., a small business in Framingham, Mass.
