Target to Invest $5 Million in Cybersecurity Education
Target said it is investing US$5 million in a multi-year campaign to educate the public on the dangers of scams.
Target said it is working with the National Cyber-Forensics & Training Alliance, National Cyber Security Alliance and Council of Better Business Bureaus to advance public education around cybersecurity.
”A group of nationally recognized, respected cybersecurity organizations in cybersecurity and consumer protection will launch a campaign to educate consumers about cybersecurity and the dangers of phishing scams,” Target said in a statement.
The company’s CEO Gregg Steinhafel said in a TV interview that the company does not know the full extent of what transpired, though it has established that malware was installed on its point-of-sale registers, reports PC World.
Target has said its customers will have zero liability for any fraudulent charges arising from the breach, reports PC World. The cybersecurity education group will convene for the first time this week in Washington D.C.
