Neiman Marcus Says 1.1 Million Cards Affected by Data Breach
Neiman Marcus said about 1.1 million credit cards may have been compromised in a data breach that occurred last year. Visa, MasterCard and Discover have notified the Dallas-based department store chain that about 2,400 cards used at its stores between July 16 and Oct. 30 were used fraudulently, according to a statement yesterday. Online shoppers weren't affected, the company said. Closely held Neiman Marcus is the second U.S. retailer to announce a customer data security breach. Minneapolis-based Target Corp. has said as many as 110 million customer accounts were compromised during the holiday shopping season by the theft of information.
