Target continues to mitigate massive data breach, faces countless lawsuits and litigation claims

Target continues to make headlines as fraudulent activity on customers’ cards ensues due to recent holiday hack

With the importance of security surrounding the increase in shopping that supports the holiday season, a retailer’s biggest fear is dealing with a cybersecurity threat during their most high traffic time of the year. So when Target announced a data breach, only days away from Christmas, the timing was anything but convenient for the retail giant and its customers.

An estimated 40 million credit cards and debit cards that were used between Nov. 27 and Dec. 15 were breached, though Target representatives confirmed earlier this week that all customer’s PIN numbers remain secure and safe.
