Target: PIN Data Lifted, But Safe

PIN data was lifted during the Target data breach, the corporation has admitted, but Target is “confident that PIN numbers are safe and secure.” Target assured its customers that their debit card accounts are safe after a company-wide scam that may have impacted up to 40 million shoppers. “The PIN information was fully encrypted at the keypad, remained encrypted within our system, and remained encrypted when it was removed from our systems,” said Target in its statement.
