Is this a good-for-business acknowledgement that even the best security framework has flaws, or companies stepping back from protecting their customers in favor of covering themselves? According to the CTO of Counterpane, e-commerce businesses 'don't have to prevent hacking; they have to manage their risks.' Interesting perspective from a security wonk." Of course, I'd rather have cracker insurance.
