In May 2018, the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief and Consumer Protection Act (Economic Growth Act) has been signed into federal law and amended Dodd-Frank Act’s Section 301 and 302, which, in effect, made some updates in the FCRA. Thus, the increase in Consumer credit protection and the implementation of the “Nationwide Security Freeze”.
