A security breach that started around Thanksgiving has left 40 million people at risk. The breach started around Thanksgiving, and Target customers who made purchases using their cards at the chain's stores between Nov. 27 and Dec. 15 may have been exposed. Security experts say the kind of information stolen – including names, card numbers, expiration dates and three-digit security codes – could allow criminals to make fraudulent purchases almost anywhere in the world.

On today’s episode of Your Money, Your Matters, we’ll talk about the implications of such a breach, and we’ll address how consumers can protect themselves from security breaches such as this, as well as from other financial scams.

Broadcasting every Tuesday from 11 a.m. to noon CDT, Your Money, Your Matters features radio personalities Linda Webb-Manon and Rick Grady, Cornerstone Credit Union League; Courtney Moran, Cornerstone Credit Union Foundation, and Todd Mark, Consumer Credit Counseling Services. Each week, the four discuss financial issues of most importance to consumers.
