US shoppers damning of target data breach

The ramifications of the data breach affecting more than 100 million shoppers at US retailer Target will continue for sometime – not only for target but for retailers generally. ┬áThe TV networks have been running stories of shoppers switching to cash because of the breach.

The Huffington Post published a piece yesterday about Target specifically, the implications for the company and how it is and could respond.

While Target is a massive business, the risks and implications are the same for newsagents given that each transaction involves customers giving us information, some of which could some times identify them. The Target breach is making shoppers more vigilant. We would be well served to be on the front foot.
