One thing that struck me was the horror and headline news surrounding the Target breach and the relatively little reporting about the more recent -- and IMHO much more worrying -- breach at JP Morgan. In speaking to CIOs and CSOs, they were much more concerned about the JP Morgan breach, given the financial sector's well-deserved reputation for spending, focus, and skill at cybersecurity (especially when compared with retail). Yet here was a huge financial organization hacked -- and the public was, generally, less concerned, as were mainstream reporters.
I'm unsure whether it was because of the timing: After all, this came after Target, Home Depot, Chang, and several other large retailers/restaurants. Or because consumers' financial information, apparently, wasn't stolen. But whatever the reason, the ennui was disappointing.
