Recently, we learned a third-party payment systems vendor confirmed a breach that hit Jimmy John’s at more than 200 locations nationwide, along with over 100 additional independent restaurants. Only a few weeks ago, we saw Home Depot confirm a 56 million credit card breach—now being referred to as the biggest retail breach ever. Lastly, let’s not forget Backoff malware, which impacted nearly 1,000 US businesses, according to the Department of Homeland Security.
