Lawmakers on Capitol Hill have more answers about what Target Corp. is doing after last year's massive data breach.

Wednesday was the third straight day of hearings. Members of the Secret Service, the Federal Trade Commission, and the Department of Homeland Security testified.

The goal of Wednesday’s meeting was to find out if there are ways to prevent data breaches.

On Tuesday, Target's CFO apologized for the data breach that had the personal information of as many as 110 million customers stolen.
