Could you show me your antivirus?

A couple of days ago I went to the local shopping mall to buy something. At the checkout I gave my credit card and the clerk asked me for an identity document. This practice though somewhat annoying, is quite usual and is in place for protecting both the customer and the shop. Nonetheless, after what happened to Target chain I wonder if I would be entitled to ask them to show me their antivirus.Yes, put like that is just provocative, but I am giving them a very sensitive piece of information (actually one of the most sensitive and safeguarded), shouldn’t I be reassured that they took the most adequate measures to handle it properly?
