Neiman Marcus confirms news of data breach that affects holiday shoppers

Neiman Marcus confirmed their data breach, according to an ABC News report on Jan. 11. The luxury retail store announced that customers’ credit card data and other sensitive information could’ve been stolen during the holiday season. This is similar to the Target security breach that has affected 110 millions of people.

Neiman Marcus also released a statement on this day. The retailer said they received reports of customer’s credit card information being stolen in mid-December after they shopped at those stores. The company found evidence on Jan. 1 that indeed it was hackers that breached their cyber-security.

The store waited until almost the middle of January to make this announcement. Why? Simply because they didn’t want to lose customers during the busy holiday season. The fine retailer was more concerned about sales rather than the security of their customers.

The company argued that they do have their customers’ in mind. They said in the statement, “We have begun to contain the intrusion and have taken significant steps to further enhance security information. The security of our customers’ information is always a priority and we sincerely regret any inconvenience.”

Consumers have enough to worry about with the Target security breach. The number of customers affected increase daily. Neiman Marcus has offered few details on how the attack happened, including what data was taken or how many customers are at risk. The company also operates other fine retailers such as Bergdorf Goodman, Horchow, Cusp and Last Call.
