Target inks $18.5m deal with US states to settle 2013 data breach

Anonymous Coward

With fines like this...

It only makes good business sense to ignore the warnings and keep outsourcing staff to India and places.. Just wait for the next breach and wade through it once again. 'We can always blame it on a State Actor'.

Reputation Damage

Target has suffered reputation damage coupled with a very competitive retail market though they seemed to have recovered from it. The problem for all US retailers is B&M retail is overbuilt and very competitive so mismanagement coupled with stupidity could suddenly take a company down. Many well-known US retailers are going permanently TITSUP and are being put out their misery.

Fuck the rules and your customers

Let the proles get their credit cards hacked and just lawyer up to pay peanuts in fines.

It's cheaper than giving a shit about people.

I wipe my arse with you Target.

Ridiculously small fine. That's 25 cents per person.
