Re: Don't assume liability?
Agree! I don't know if I've seen any follow up letters from companies who have offered free monitoring after a breach. It would have been nice to know they changed things...if they did.

Give people control of their privacy
> "Give people control of their privacy"

That sounds like a good plan.. but what it usually turns into is a mess where users are flooded with options so that they give up. I can't remember how many notices I've received where banks/credit cards/etc tell me that if I want to opt-out -- I just need to read a dense pamphlet of legalese that essentially states that doing so means I no longer have access to verious conveniences -- or that I will just be required to close my account.

Don't assume liability?
The problem is that no one wants to assume legal liability -- so there's a lot of deny, deny, apologize, move on. 

Giving away free credit monitoring isn't a solution, but it seems to be the best way to make things "go away" until the next breach...
