Venable partner Milo Cividanes was quoted in a December 19, 2013 article on the need for retailers to increase their data security. The need for increased security came to light on Thursday when Target announced a data breach which compromised the credit and debit cards of more than 40 million of the retailer’s customers.

To stay ahead of increasing security threats and resulting legal issues, companies should work to stay a step ahead of hackers despite increasing difficulties. “It's a spiraling missile race between the businesses that are trying to protect their data and the bad guys that are constantly finding new ways to breach the system, which makes it important to have various layers of security so that if one fails to contain the attack, there will be another product blocking it,” said Cividanes.
