TJX: Data breach damage $25 million and counting

Here is a pretty good reason to make sure your company is doing a good job of protecting customer data: TJX: Data breach damage $25 million and counting.

That's right, according to SearchSecurity, the bottom line for TJX Companies Inc. took a big hit in the first quarter of 2007, thanks to a $12 million charge tied to the security breach that exposed at least 45.7 million credit and debit card holders to identity fraud. In total, the breach has cost the company about $25 million to date. And that doesn't include the cost of customers who decided to shop elsewhere.
