Hearings Begin On Target Data Breach: Target CFO to testify tomorrow

Esme Murphy reports:

Congress began a series of hearings Monday before a Senate banking subcommittee into the massive data breach at Target and other retailers.

Lawmakers grilled the Secret Service about when Target told them about the breach, and another hearing is slated for Tuesday. That’s when Target CFO John Mulligan will be in the hot seat.

On Monday, members of Congress focused on whether companies, including Target, delayed informing law enforcement officials and the public.
