Target to invest $5 million in cybersecurity education

Minneapolis -- Target Corp. will invest $5 million in a multi-year campaign to educate consumers about cybersecurity and the dangers of phishing scams.

“Target has a longstanding history of commitment to our communities, and cybersecurity is one of the most pressing issues facing consumers today,” said Gregg Steinhafel, chairman, president and CEO, Target, in an open letter published in newspapers across the country. “We are proud to be working with three trusted organizations — the National Cyber-Forensics and Training Alliance (NCFTA), National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) and Better Business Bureau, Inc. (BBB) — to advance public education around cybersecurity."

The group will convene for the first time this week in Washington, D.C., and more details will be shared following that meeting, Target said.
