  •  Target's data loss? Victims lose more $$$ (0+ / 0-)

    ... than the company loses per capita in these kinds of cases, that was my takeaway from Data breaches cost consumers billions of dollars, an NBC article of June 2013 that I cited in my diary yesterday on this topic, Is data security worth it? Depends who's counting. (You might want to skip the troll-inflected comment thread.)

    IMO, this is going to be the wave of the future. At least until the day victimization by data breach becomes so prevalent that the tide turns away from widespread surrender of what amounts to your financial reputation (as Experian, Equifax, and TransUnion report it). My guess is that this will be a long time coming. Credit cards are soooooooooooo convenient......
