Connecticut Attorney General George Jepsen said Tuesday the state will receive about $1 million as part of a multistate settlement over a data breach at Target.
Connecticut joined 46 other states and Washington, D.C., in the $18.5 million settlement to resolve the states' investigation into the retail store's 2013 data breach. It represents the largest multistate data breach settlement, Jepsen said.
The states' investigation, which was led by Connecticut [sic] and Illinois, found that cyber attackers got access into Target's gateway server in November 2013. Credentials were stolen from a third-party vendor.
