The two companies will be on Capitol Hill on Thursday, testifying about the massive hacks to their databases of customer information. They'll be appearing before the House Subcommittee on Commerce, Manufacturing, and Trade, chaired by Rep. Mary Bono Mack (R-CA).

Mack's subcommittee is said to be preparing legislation on corporate data management to be introduced in the next few weeks.
