US Senate Hearings On Target 27 Mar 14

The chief financial officer for Target says the retail giant is making steps to protect its computer system after last year’s massive data breach. John  Mulligan on Wednesday testified before a US Senate committee looking into the breach. A report cited during the hearing reportedly showed that Target missed “multiple warnings” that could have prevented the issue. Mulligan said Target has separated key parts of its computer network, increased investments in malware protection and added another layer of authentication for those accessing the computers.
