In response to a crippling breach in its security that has affected 70 million shoppers, Target has formed its own Cybersecurity Coalition. The move was announced today by Target CEO Gregg Steinhafel. The Coalition will include the National Cyber-Forensics and Training Alliance (NCFTA), the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) and the Better Business Bureaus (BBB).
