Banks drop lawsuit against Trustwave

Following Trustwave CEO Robert J. McCullen’s statement that his company was not involved in monitoring Target’s networks, the two banks that had launched a lawsuit against the firm have dropped the case.

Green Bank of Houston and Trustmark both filed notices of dismissal yesterday. Trustwave should perhaps now sue them.

It’s still not clear, however, whether Trustwave was the PCI DSS assessor that signed off on Target’s compliance in September. It is still possible therefore that the banks may file a new complaint just on that.

McCullen’s statement simply says

Contrary to the misstated allegations in the plaintiffs’ complaints, Target did not outsource its data security or IT obligations to Trustwave. Trustwave did not monitor Target’s network, nor did Trustwave process cardholder data for Target.

He makes no mention of the assessment — so we may not have heard the last of this yet.
