As customer data breaches become increasingly common, retailers and restaurants have established something of a protocol for them. Target, Nieman Marcus, Home Depot, P.F. Chang’s, Jimmy John’s, and quite a few others set up micro-sites as information clearinghouses and offered customers free credit monitoring.
JPMorgan Chase, which was hit by a cyber attack over the summer, isn’t doing that.
Rather than offering information about the breach through a microsite, the bank revealed the size of the breach in a Securities and Exchange Commission filing Thursday. According to the filing, 76 million households were affected.
