Macys.com suffers a data security breach
Digitialcommerce360 reports that Macy’s Inc.’s e-commerce site suffered a data security breach between April and June this year, giving criminals access to credit and debit card information, names and birthdays of “a small number” of Macys.com and Bloomingdales.com customers. This is the second time this month that a large retailer has suffered an e-commerce data breach, with Adidas AG reporting compromised user data including contact information, usernames, and encrypted passwords. It is becoming ever more critical for cybersecurity to sit at the core of Loss Prevention in a retail enterprise.
