Security vendor Trustwave was accused in a class-action suit of failing to detect the attack that led to Target's data breach, one of the largest on record.
Target, which is also named as a defendant, outsourced its data security obligations to Trustwave, which "failed to live up to its promises or to meet industry standards," alleged the suit, filed Monday in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois.
Plaintiffs Trustmark National Bank of New York and Green Bank of Houston claim Target and Trustwave failed to stop the theft of 40 million payment card details and 70 million other personal records.
The lawsuit, one of dozens filed against Target, illustrates the growing frustration of banks burdened with the costs of reissuing compromised cards and their willingness to pull in other companies viewed as culpable into legal battles.
