Pennsylvania has joined 46 states in an $18.5 million settlement with Target Corporation following a major data breach in 2013.

According to Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro, the commonwealth will receive $469,000 as a result of the settlement.

The company is also required to improve its security measures to better protect its customers’ financial data from cyber hacks.

More than a million Pennsylvanians had their credit card or personal information stolen as a result of the 2013 security breach.
