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).

Larose, Privacy & Security Practice leader at Mintz, Levin, Cohn, Ferris, Glovsky and Popeo PC, in Boston. She provided her insights Jan. 15.
