Crispier Breach Disclosure (Cooks Illustrated, unknown # CCs)

A good breach disclosure fills you up with what happened, how, and what the company is doing for you. But too often, such notices are soggy and imprecise. Want more precision in the recipe? Beefier response? Cooks Illustrated set out to see what could be done, in “What Happened To Your Website.” Unfortunately, the disclosure ended up, like a good souffle, full of hot air, but not a lot of substance. At least it was only subscriber credit cards.

Maybe they’ll see what can be done to improve the recipe.
