The Week Ending April 6
Topping this week's roundup of those having a rough week is Facebook, which continues to battle a firestorm over its user data practices. This week the social media giant said profile data on 2 billion users could have been accessed by "malicious actors."
Also making the list this week is retailer Hudson's Bay Co. and its Saks Fifth Avenue and Lord & Taylor chains, which were the victims of a security breach that might have resulted in the theft of 5 million credit and debit card numbers. Also on this week's list is Intel for a report that Apple might ditch Intel processors in future Apple products, Docker for losing its founder and CTO, and Commvault for facing a proxy fight from activist investor Elliott Management.
