State Attorney General Bob Cooper is urging all Tennessee residents who shop at Target stores to take advantage of one year or free credit monitoring being offered by the retail company in the wake of the massive data breach. Last month, Target reported the payment card information of approximately 40 million customers had been obtained by hackers. In addition, Cooper says "consumers should take the proactive steps of monitoring their bank account activity, and changing their PIN numbers and passwords.”
