Nieman Marcus joins Target shoppers in latest security breach

See also

As if it weren’t bad enough that an estimated 110 million Target shoppers, as reported by NBC News and others, may have had their credit and debit card information stolen; the latest retailer to report a security breach during the holiday season is Nieman Marcus whose breach is thought to have gone undetected from July to December, according to a New York Times report.

Interestingly enough, Nieman Marcus had previously teamed up to include their products inside Target stores. The connection has not been named as having any connection to the two security issues.

Target has since offered free credit monitoring for one year, with details posted to their site. However, it is unclear how many will take advantage of this offer after becoming worried and skeptical to give away any additional information that may be required for the free monitoring services.

No one can truly ever be assured full protection from security breaches, but many have probably looked at their credit and debit card statements more since December than ever before. Stopping it as soon as you recognize a problem is one of the best first defenses to stopping further loss of money or identity theft.

Meanwhile, if you feel confident to shop, local Target stores are offering store-wide clearance events with sales prices throughout the store. To be completely safe, use gift cards you might have received over the holidays as gifts. Or, bring cash.
