Going Shopping Can Hurt Your Identity

Normally the only thing you have to worry about when you go shopping or go out to eat is how big of a hit your wallet is going to take. Unfortunately, new developments in data protection practices around the globe force us to think about things we never had to think about previously.

One of those things is a data breach occurring where we shop or eat.

Your credit card information along with any other identifying information held by your retailer is now in the hands of someone nefarious. Why? Because the retailer failed to do what was necessary to protect your sensitive personal information, sensitive personal information they forced you to give them in the first place. The consequences of having your credit card information stolen can last for years.
