Sally Beauty to offer credit monitoring to affected customers following data breach
DENTON, Texas — Earlier this month, Sally Beauty confirmed a security breach and is now offering one free year of credit monitoring and identity-theft protection for those customers who may have been affected by the incident.
As previously reported by Drug Store News, the beauty retailer detected on March 5 an unauthorized intrusion into its network. Over the last several weeks, the retailer has been investigating the security incident with the assistance of its advisers.
The company previously disclosed that it believed fewer than 25,000 records containing payment card data may have been illegally accessed on its system. However, as a result of the continuing investigation, it now believes that a larger number of additional records containing payment card data may have been illegally accessed and removed from its systems.
The company stressed that it will not speculate on the scope of its recent data security incident until the forensic review progresses because experience with such incidents at other retailers has taught that it is difficult to ascertain the extent of a data breach incident until the required forensic review is complete.
