Bank Dismisses Law Suit Claims Against Target and Trustwave

By Vigilize | Wednesday, April 2, 2014 - Leave a Comment

Trustwave may have been falsely named as an IT security contractor of Target.

Trustmark Nation Bank has officially filed for dismissal of its lawsuit claim against Target and security vendor Trustwave. Trustmark had followed Green Bank of Houston in filing the class-action suit, claiming Target and Trustwave failed to do everything to prevent the mass theft of credit card information and personal records.

It recently came to light that Trustwave may have wrongly been named as an IT security contractor of Target. Trustwave’s Chairman and CEO Robert McCullen stated in a letter posted on their website on Saturday, “Trustwave did not monitor Target’s network, nor did Trustwave process cardholder data for Target.”

It’s still unclear whether or not Green Bank will take similar actions and dismiss the claim. The suit stated that after scanning Target’s network on September 20, 2013, Trustwave reported that no vulnerabilities were found. Furthermore, the suit claimed that Trustwave failed to ensure Target’s security system was up to industry standards.
