Target’s response to data leak weak, but the corp is in good company

While other retailers (psst…Old Navy) are offering up 60-75% off retail prices in accordance with their “after holiday” sales, Target responded to its breach of over 40 million customer credit card records by offering a mere 10% off discount. Affected consumers probably feel this is like a slap in the face, implying “your identity, security, and credit are only worth 10% of our sales.” However, to reinforce how much they care, Target has pointed consumers to an existing site, annualcreditreport.com, which allows consumers to access a free credit report from each reporting bureau every 12 months.

But, Target isn’t the only retailer to become the victim of consumer data theft. In fact, I’m sure a few other retailers and organizations naturally come to your mind.  Click the infographic below to see who you recognize!
