SaneIT, we were headed in that direction in terms of more and more punishment for guilty firms. But given the swing in US politics, expect the cyber pendulum to swing the other way for a while.

sometimes sadly consumers and businesses don't have a choice they are doing businesses with these companies through another company they are working with and become a victim of the breaches. When companies are held responsible through legislation the Tand C issues will not get them out of breaches.

@Tomsg that's exactly the issue until there are stiff penalties applied to companies for not securing client information these breaches will continue. Congress needs to start protecting consumers!

There really were no implications or any punishment for the lax security. Most people who had information breached never knowingly used Equifax- their credit providers did. Consumers need to have the right to know who has their information and how it will be used. Providers should have a responsibilty to protect this information - and pay the price if they don't.

Until it hits them in the wallet nothing will change. It can't be a little bump either it has to be a significant amount and it has to go to the victims of the data loss not into a pool of government money that will come right back to them. We need to start holding the data companies accountable for what they are doing with data.
