Luxury retailer Neiman Marcus has reported a massive data breach smilar to what occurred to the Target Corporation over the holiday season.

The company is not saying how many customers were affected at this time, but is working with the Secret Service on the data breach. The Neiman Marcus data theft was announced on Friday, the same day that Target announced its data breach may have affected as many as 110-million Americans.
Target is going to pay for credit monitoring and identity theft help for everyone who was impacted by the massive data breach of credit and debit card transactions. The retailer will pay for those services for 12 months. Those interested will need to request an activation code online at www.creditmonitoring.target.com, and provide a name and email address.
