Brooks Brothers Reports Payment Card Data Breach

A lawyer’s nightmare: retailer Brooks Brothers announced late last week that it has become the newest retailer to suffer a payment card data breach.

According to Brooks Brothers, which is calling it a “data incident”, payment card information from certain locations of Brooks Brothers and Brooks Brothers outlets in the United States and Puerto Rico were compromised between April 4, 2016 and March 1, 2017.  The information compromised included name, card number, and security code. No debit cards were affected, nor were any airport locations affected.

The locations affected are listed on Brooks Brothers’ website. Unfortunately, like many lawyers, I shop at Brooks Brothers and was no doubt affected. There was no information provided to consumers about whether our payment cards will be reissued. This means our cards can be used, so if you shop at Brooks Brothers, check your credit card account closely and let your bank know if you see anything suspicious.
