As part of those terms, Verizon agreed to share regulatory liabilities for both the 2013 data breach, and a second data breach revealed to have affected 500 million accounts in 2014.
Verizon's CISO Chandra Mc Mahon said that the company is "committed to the highest standards of accountability and transparency, and we proactively work to ensure the safety and security of our users and networks in an evolving landscape of online threats".
"Cybercrime is not only a grave threat to personal privacy and security, but causes great financial harm to individuals who are hacked and costs the world economy hundreds of billions of dollars every year." "With the assistance of our law enforcement partners in Canada, we were able to track down and apprehend a prolific criminal hacker who had sold his services to Russian government agents.
This prosecution again illustrates that we will identify and pursue charges against hackers who compromise our country's computer infrastructure." So far, Baratov is the only person to have been arrested, although the warrants against the FSB agents still stand.

Despite this, the ex-CEO of Yahoo told the committee that the company has not been able to identify how the attackers stole the data.Karen Zacharia, Verizon's chief privacy officer, told the hearing that after Verizon had acquired Yahoo it obtained new information from a third party regarding the attacks and promptly conducted a review.
