Pennsylvania to Receive Nearly Half a Million Dollar Settlement Following Target Data Breach

HARRISBURG — Pennsylvania has joined 46 states in an $18.5 million settlement with Target Corporation following a major data breach in 2013.

According to Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro, the commonwealth will receive $469,000 as a result of the settlement.

The company is also required to improve its security measures to better protect its customers’ financial data from cyber hacks.

More than a million Pennsylvanians had their credit card or personal information stolen as a result of the 2013 security breach.

    That’s rich that PA will get money from a data breach, that did not affect them, and when they will willingly handout sensitive information; as long as the person requesting it is a US citizen. Makes perfect sense to the crooks in Harrisburg. I wonder how much I should sue the State of Pennsylvania for, for the willing release of personal information. Oh wait, I can’t because they wrote the law to protect themselves.

    Wait one minute here…Why don’t the people who’s credit was compromised get the money? Just like the Tobacco settlement. Crooks every one of them.
