BNY Mellon settles after breach

One more organization is now settling after a breach affected over 600 thousand customers. Apparently BNY Mellon will pay for 3 years of credit monitoring (initial 2 years and now an additional 12 months). At a very conservative estimate of say $10 for each person for three years, this comes to $6M - at $50 it is about $30M.

Amazing that folks dont take protecting data more seriously as opposed to making the three credit agencies wealthy!
