The news has been full of attacks on retailers. Target, which lost the data of more than 100 million customers, is just the highest profile example. Although tiny in comparison to Target, the attacks on Neiman Marcus and Michael's Stores also affected about four million customers.

- look beyond the headlines and focus on the roots of the Target attack;
- investigate what Target could have done to prevent the attack;
- propose a holistic approach to security that all companies can adopt to increase their security.
