US retailer Neiman Marcus announced Friday that its IT systems had been hacked and some customer credit card information compromised. ┬áThat’s nice corporate-speak.

On Friday also US retailer Target said the credit card details of 70 million shoppers had been affected by their credit card data breach – up from 40 million announced previously.

As a retailer you have an obligation to protect your customer information. They give you credit card and other information in a relationship of trust. Newsagents who store credit card details in their newsagency software ought to review their security.

Footnote: newsagents using Tyro need not worry since the credit card details are not shares between Tyro and their newsagency software.
