Beauty Company Investigates Security Breach

Sally Beauty Holdings, Inc., a professional beauty products distributor and retailer, announced the results of an investigation into a security incident that occurred on March 5 when its systems detected an unauthorized attempted intrusion into its network. The company hired the Verizon forensics firm to investigate the incident; the results show that fewer than 25,000 records containing card-present (track 2) payment card data were illegally accessed and possibly removed.

Sally Beauty Holdings does not yet know the full scope of the security breach, but it reassures affected customers that it will keep them informed on the company website and with notifications.

“We continue to work diligently with Verizon on this investigation and are taking necessary actions and precautions to mitigate and remediate the issues caused by this security incident,” according to the March 17 statement on the Sally Beauty Holdings website. The United States Secret Service has launched its own preliminary investigation.
