Sorry for the data breach

from here and here

Companies are always trying to assure you that they take your privacy and/or security seriously, but they say it so often (and apparently do so little to back it up) that it's become meaningless. 

It would almost be better if they said "sorry for the data breach", in the same vein as "sorry for your loss", except that they are ultimately responsible for it.

On second thought, it would be better if they just put their money where there mouths are and actually did the work required to protect us properly.
