Is The U.S. an Easy Target?

The recent Target security breach may be the largest, but other major companies have also been the subject of hackers. A year ago, online shoe store Zappos.com was hacked, exposing the personal data of 24 million customers. In June, the networking site LinkedIn confirmed that a major security breach corresponding to LinkedIn accounts compromised users’ passwords.
