10-21-14 Cyber Security Experts in Minneapolis as Data Breach Concerns Rise

Rick Kupchella’s – Bring Me the News

The nation’s top cyber security experts are descending on Minneapolis this week after a year of high-profile data protection failures affecting millions of consumers.

The fourth annual Cyber Security Summit, being held at The Commons Hotel at the University of Minnesota, opened Tuesday as news broke that Staples is investigating a possible data breach in the Northeast, NBC reports.

If a breach occurred, the Massachusetts-based company would become the latest in a growing line of national chains targeted by hackers in the past 12 months, with notable others including Home Depot, JP Morgan Chase and, of course, Twin Cities retail giant Target.

Target was the victim of one of the biggest attacks in November and December last year, as hackers compromised around 40 million customers’ credit and debit cards. Forbes put the total cost of the breach to shareholders at almost $150 million.

It is because of these major breaches that this year’s Cyber Security Summit is considered to be the most important one yet, and a news release for the event says the issue of large-scale breaches will be tackled head on by the 300 government, business and academic experts in attendance.
