In the wake of the massive data card breach at Target retail stores in the US, the National Association of Federal Credit Unions (Nafcu) has urged Congress to crack down on data security weaknesses in the merchant industry.
Crime will always migrate to the weakest point. Having failed to implement Chip & Pin in the USA it's innevitable that something like this would happen (again!), though why Target were keeping and storing the card security codes is beyond me! It'd be interesting
to know if they were PCI-DSS compliant and exactly how the compromise took place.....
