Data Safety after the Zappos Hack
Data Safety after the Zappos Hack

AIR DATE: January 19, 2012

Online shoe retailer Zappos experienced a major security breach. Zappos announced they were the victim of a cyber attack and 24 million customer accounts were put at risk. Zappos announced that the names, e-mail address, billing and shipping addresses, phone numbers, the last four digits of credit card numbers and scrambled passwords may have been illegally accessed. Zappos insists credit card numbers were not put at risk. So how safe is your data? We talk to an information security analyst about what happens when that type of information falls into the hands of criminals.
