Is there any end in sight to corporate data leaks?

It seems a week can't go by with reports of another large corporation exposing credit card information, personal data information, etc. onto the net. Doesn't anyone go to Black Hat anymore?It seems a week can't go by with reports of another large corporation exposing credit card information, personal data information, etc. onto the net.

This has to make me wonder. How many of these leaks don't we know about? Is there dozens of others, hundreds, thousands? Are there people who know about this but are afraid to speak up? Do we need an anonymous posting place so these things can come into the light?

And lastly, when is someone going to be held responsible for this? There just seem to be much incentive to really restrict access to this stuff.
