happened six years ago. americans think everybody is protecting themselves but nobody is protecting me. at the end of the day a aring is nice but when will you do something? >> we have to figure out what we need to do. first we have to protect the consumers with their personal identifiable information that is a dangerous combination. are their systems able to stop these? now what can we do more? and at what point in time is appropriate to notify the consumer? tt is the trigger point. when can say provide the information to the consumer that their information has been obtained by somebody else so they can protect themselves? >> garett is laws on the
book about battle ready. by the time you aae notified with the damages done. mean the protections before the hacker starts. not after. civic the protections have to be there. of chip and pin can help with that. gerri: i hope in have been sued. we look forward to your hearing. thankou for coming on. to drop the ball? we don't know with more on this president and ceo of the national association of federal credit unions. you have ben quite outspoken about your views. food you think is to blame it? >> it comes down to the retailer is not protecting the network.

not just the target and neiman-marcus is seems you will get a real outcry saying this has to be fixed. so far they have them lackadaisical but what are you prepared to do if it gets ugly? >> i was on the phone this afternoon with the congressman that his phone is ringing off the hook. i think we will. he will have a hearing and we appreciate those. the time is now. the american sumer needs to have the national standard to protect consumer data just like credit unions. gerri: this is a really complicated string of transactions just for a simple credit card tranction. so what part of the transaction are they screwing up? gimmick they need to protect
their networks better. this is nothing new. a lot of these breaches will keep goin on and you'll hear more than just six other retaile coming forward. they have to do a better job to protect consumers information into a plot up a better fireball. they have that technology and they can do that. gerri: you have to reassure cards, bank of america, a jpmorgan chase thomas to the group, i assume that is a co to the bank? >> yes. we have to reissue cards to protect the consumer for credit unions that want to protect their account information and personal informatio so sometimes a new card is the best way to do that. that could cost anywhere between five or $10 per account the plastic cost
