Methinks the lady doth protest too much

Reports of data breaches are a pain, and expensive.  And embarrassing.  Think about P.F. Chang’s, who reported a data breach involving 33 locations and customer credit cards and debit cards.  Wall Street Journal, August 5, 2014 B5

So, how do you view the suggestion that not all data breaches should be reported?  “A Contrary View on Data Breaches,” Wall Street Journal, August 5, 2014 B1

Does this really expose companies to more attacks from fraudsters?  Or are they already a target?  Isn’t it better to let potentially affected customers know?  Whose information is it, anyway?
