Macy's Data Breach Shows the Value of Providing Identity Protection

The reports of data breaches just keep on coming. Now, shoppers registered at the online stores for Macy's and Bloomingdales have to worry about their personal data getting into the wrong hands. Hackers got into the accounts of thousands of people registered at two shopping sites that Macy's operates, and The cyberattacks went on for six weeks in April and June 2018, until they were finally stopped. Meanwhile, the thieves were able to access names, credit card numbers, and credit card expiration dates. The breach of private data of Macy's customers was just the latest in a series of recent breaches of consumer data. Earlier this year, the sneaker and clothing company, Adidas, announced a breach that may have affected millions of its customers. Other recent data attacks targeted Sears, Saks Fifth Avenue, Lord & Taylor, Under Armour, Kmart, and Whole Foods. The recent breach of Macy's customer data is one more sign, in a long series of signals, that consumers are far too vulnerable to hackers. Stolen data can be used for identity theft, which causes tremendous problems for the victims.
