Where’s Willie Sutton when you (don’t) need him?

Willie Sutton, a prolific bank robber, was reportedly asked why he robbed banks.  He reportedly said, “Because that’s where the money is.”

“The Hacked Data Broker? Be Very Afraid,” The Wall Street Journal, September 8, 2015 B1. Data brokers collect and store, analyze, and sell a huge amount of consumer information.  What if one of these is hacked?  Has this already happened?

If you’re in the data collection business, how do you protect that data from misuse?  Is tomorrow’s Willie Sutton already inside your firewall?
