There has recently been some interesting news. It seems that The Home Depot, both in the US and Canada, has experienced a breach. Recall that Target also suffered a breach not long ago
This begs the question; from a security perspective, does being compliant matter?
There are reports that the malware discovered on Home Depot systems is similar to that discovered on systems at Target. What is striking is that, according to Krebs on Security (who broke the Home Depot story), “On Tuesday, KrebsOnSecurity broke the news that Home Depot was working with law enforcement to investigate “unusual activity” after multiple banks said they’d traced a pattern of card fraud back to debit and credit cards that had all been used at Home Depot locations since May of this year.”
