LOS ANGELES, CA – January 14, 2014 – Garrett Chipman of TVG Consulting has expert knowledge in all things relating to data security. The clients of TVG Consulting are protected through their firewall and security management services. The recent data security breach involving Target, has many business owners concerned with their own data security. Chipman says, “Once in a while, a security breach affecting a large number of customers shakes up the entire business community and consumers alike.” The CEO of this computer support firm in Los Angeles then gives details and professional insight on the current challenge Target is facing.
Garrett Chipman states, “The Minneapolis-
based discount chain reported that a wide-scale security breach occurred between November 27 and December 15, 2013. The security breach may have affected as many as 40 million credit card and debit cardholders who used their cards to shop at Target during the said period.” He continues by saying, “With its quick action, Target may have contained the financial damage to a minimum. However, the security breach may certainly have affected the perception of its customers. Many Target customers are average, hard-working Americans and Canadians. Many shoppers expressed concern that they can’t afford to have fraud operators steal their money. Others express fear of what could happen when they swiped their cards.”
Chipman explains, “The lesson to take away from this is simply that companies must take greater precaution to ensure the personal information of their customers. Security and computer hackers are becoming more and more sophisticated. A company like Target may be able to contain the financial damage to a wide-scale security fraud. However, the damage to its reputation may not be that easy to fix and may even be long-term.”
With that being said, Target may lose many customers over this incident. Garrett emphasizes the importance of up to date data security to avoid any situation like this. Data security breaches can affect large corporations as well as small businesses. In fact, they can be more detrimental to small businesses.
