BNA Privacy and Security Law Report

Target Corp. announced Dec. 19, 2013, that it had discovered an intrusion that may have compromised approximately 40 million customer payment cards used at its U.S. stores from Nov. 27 to Dec. 15, 2013 (12 PVLR 2133, 12/23/13). The retail giant later said that its investigation of that incident revealed that personal contact information for some 70 million customers also had been stolen (13 PVLR 61, 1/13/14).

Bloomberg BNA Privacy & Security Law Report Senior Legal Editor Donald G. Aplin posed a series of questions about the Target breach and the company’s response to the security incident to Cynthia J. Larose, Privacy & Security Practice leader at Mintz, Levin, Cohn, Ferris, Glovsky and Popeo PC, in Boston. She provided her insights Jan. 15.
