response rather than "concern"
all this hacking should elicit a response rather than a concern.    Get GnuPG: generate your own key.

on x.509 certificates: A " Certificate Authority" should be good enough only for marginal trust.   Use your copy of GnuPG to countersign your certificate for your Cedit Union, Amazon, Tax Software and the like

security is not something that cna be distributed by commercial interests: you have to roll up your sleeves, get your boots on and get to it.

it won't be that hard to set up help centers in the credit unions, schools, and such --
, but: if we continue as we have recently hacking will be worse in 2015 -- and it has already gone beyond the tipping point.   it's unacceptable.   hacking can no longer be swept under the carpet as "part of the cost of business"

start by getting rid of products that do not put security and privacy first.
