Hiding the ball

“Google Hid Data Breach for Months,” The Wall Street Journal, October 9, 2018 A1.  Alphabet hid or failed to disclose the breach of “hundreds of thousands of users” for six months, to avoid “regulatory scrutiny and … reputational damage.”  Data accessed between 2011 and 2018.

What did the delay in notification cost customers? Did Google care?  Who at Google knew, and are they still employed?  Why?

Don’t be evil.
