Credit reporting company Equifax said Friday that it will comply with New York regulators who are seeking information on the 2017 data breach that compromised personal information of 145.5 million Americans, including more than 8 million New Yorkers.

A spokeswoman for Atlanta-based Equifax said the company would submit information demanded by Secretary of State Rossana Rosado late last month requesting information on a July data breach that was made public in September. The breach included individuals’ names, Social Security numbers, birthdates, addresses and driver’s license numbers.

On Dec. 27, Rosado wrote to Equifax’s interim Chief Executive Officer Paulino do Rego Barros Jr. requesting New York-specific data about consumers whose credit-card information or personally identifying information was exposed, and the number of children under the age of 16 who were affected by the breach. Rosado demanded the information in connection with an executive order issued by Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Dec. 12.
