Senator McCaskill's questions target Target

Following one of the nation’s largest breaches of consumers’ personal data in history, the Chairmen of the Senate Commerce Committee and the Consumer Protection Subcommittee are taking action. 
Missouri U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill, the Chairman of the Subcommittee on Consumer Protection, along with Senator Jay Rockefeller, Chairman of the Senate Commerce Committee, wrote to Target asking for answers from the company’s information security officials, and advocating the need for greater protection for consumers.
Both senators asked the President and CEO of Target for the latest findings on the circumstances that permitted unauthorized access to the financial and personal information of as many as 110 million Americans, including Missourians who shopped at Target's 36 locations in the Show-Me state. The security breach occurred over the holidays.  
Senators McCaskill and Rockefeller wrote, in part, "We expect that your security experts have had time to fully examine the cause and impact of the breach and will be able to provide the Committee with detailed information.”
