This is not a good thing. What gives the state the right to this money? What about the people that got there information stolen what do they get.

If this was a settlement from a lawsuit I would have no problem with that. But with a law like this if someone was to install a card reader into an ATM and steal some numbers before it is found it is the Banks fault.

What happen to punishing the actual criminal not the people trying to make a living?

I can understand having to provide some security to your customers. But this story does not explain if they did provide some security or not. There is no such thing as a completely secure computer or network.

This story scares me. Why would anyone want to run a business in this state is beyond me?
