Iowa AG joins $1.5 million settlement with Neiman Marcus over data breach

The Neiman Marcus Group has agreed to pay $1.5 million and implement several policies following the 2013 breach of customer payment card data at 77 Neiman Marcus stores, Iowa Attorney General Tom Miller announced Tuesday. About 370,000 cards were affected in the months-long hack by an unknown party, which Neiman Marcus publicly disclosed in January 2014. The investigation concluded that 268 of those cards were associated with Iowa consumers. Iowa’s share of the settlement funds is $20,823.89.
