The Companies—Home Depot, JP Morgan Chase, Target.
The Information—56 million credit cards, 76 million ‘households’, 7 million small businesses,
and 110 million accounts.
The Impact—According to recent reports, Home Depot estimates that investigation, credit monitoring, call
center, and other costs could top $62 million. Target’s stock fell by almost 14% in the months following news
of the breach, with profits down 46% by the end of Q4 2013, and breach-related expenses totaling $146 million.
The impact of the JP Morgan Chase data breach has yet to be determined, but early reports suggest the costs
could top that of Target.
