The Target breach exposed the credit card information of 40 million customers and made huge international headlines. But, the entry point should have been the real story. No matter how solid a company’s cyber defense, they have to be concerned with their entire cybersecurity exposure, including supply, partner and support chains. In the Target case, there were errors throughout. It was a breach waiting to happen.
