Sally Beauty confirms second data breach in year


Denton, Texas – It’s official: Sally Beauty Holdings Inc. has experienced its second data breach in the span of a year. Sally Beauty confirmed an “illegal intrusion” into its payment card systems has occurred in a posting on the retailer’s website.

Sally Beauty did not specify when the intrusion took place or what or how much customer data was compromised. The retailer initially announced it was investigating a possible data breach earlier this month.

Sally Beauty reported a security breach that may have exposed fewer than 25,000 customer credit card numbers in 2014; this breach is a separate incident.

“We will not speculate on the scope of the intrusion as our forensics investigation is still underway,” said Chris Brickman, president and CEO. “We are working diligently to address the issue and to care for any customers who may have been affected by the incident.”

Customers will not be responsible for any fraudulent charges.
