In this Tech Tuesday: doodling for dollars, a Clinton comes to South by Southwest, and Target ups its cyber security.

The retail giant is investing $100 million to upgrade its credit card system to chip-based technology. It's considered much more secure than the magnetic strips.

A breach of Target's system over the holidays exposed the personal or financial data of nearly a third of U.S. adults. The new card technology should be up and running by early next year.

SXSW announced today Chelsea Clinton will be one of the keynote speakers for the interactive festival. She will talk about empowering the next generation to take action on the world's most urgent challenges.

Her address will be at 2 p.m. on Tuesday, March 11.

Go here for more information on Clinton's keynote.

Other keynotes for the 2014 SXSW Interactive Festival include Austin Kleon (Friday, March 7); Neil deGrasse Tyson (Saturday, March 8); Anne Wojcicki (Sunday, March 9); and Adam Savage (Monday, March 10).

Finally, Google is holding its seventh annual Doodle 4 Google competition.

Young artists can submit a logo that finishes the phrase, "If I could invent one thing to make the world a better place..."

This winner gets a $30,000 scholarship and $50,000 grant for his or her school.
