Target Corp. on Friday said it has invested $5 million in a cybersecurity coalition and will be working with three organizations — the National Cyber-Forensics and Training Alliance, National Cyber Security Alliance and Better Business Bureaus — to advance public education around cybersecurity. The group will launch a campaign to accelerate the dialogue around cybersecurity threats and the dangers of consumer phishing scams.
Target on Dec. 19 revealed that credit or debit-card information may have been stolen from 40 million people who shopped in its U.S. stores between Black Friday and Dec. 15. It subsequently learned that another 70 million consumers may have had their names, mailing addresses, phone numbers and e-mail addresses stolen. Target said there may have been some overlap between the two groups, but didn’t specify to what extent.
