You may have already read the news but I wanted to make sure you heard about this breaking story. There’s been a massive data breach at Global Payments — a company that processes credit card payments for MasterCard and Visa.  Global Payments hasn’t said how many customer accounts have been affected or even the types of information that was involved.  Visa and MasterCard are among the credit card companies affected.  Both have said that they’ve noticed the banks that are their payment card issuers.  Go to and to for excellent stories.

There will be much more to this story so make sure you watch for stories this weekend.
