Re: Be proactive
Your reference specifically to the US has made me think towards other countries. I know that other countries in the EU have much more astringent privacy laws which leads to more security safeguards put in place. Why do you think that similar strict protocols are not in place in this country?

Re: Be proactive
There are a lot of things to do from the retailers' point of view. The recent cases in US are the demonstration that security has been ignored for too much time by retailers and by Credit Card Issues. 

We need a layered approach and every actor involved in the process must re-analyze and improve security measures to adopt to mitigate the risks.

Two common Web application attacks illustrate security concerns
An attack by Hackers on consumer data poses a great risk for retail businesses. These attacks are common and retailers need to adopt suitable measures to check these risks in order to retain confidence of their customers. I work with McGladrey and there's a whitepaper on our website that offers useful information on the common security concerns for businesses and ways to mitigate them.

Be proactive
I have noticed the same changes in behavior even with people who were not directly affected. I noticed that my relatives, due to the target breach, have changed all of their passwords and have become more aware of their finances. I think this might have been a blessing in disguise. It is making people become more aware of the threats and the real life circumstances that the digital realm can entail.

What needs to be emphasized is always be vigilant of your accounts. Check them at least once a week and change passwords regularly. Even when your data is breached, you can stay a step ahead by being aware of personal changes. Although we may not have the ability to change the situation, we definitely have the ability to alleviate future woes.
