Easier to wait for the incident and then pay
The way this works is the classic "show me the money" fashion. Security costs money and it is seen (until a breach happens) as an unneeded expense. Another common "modus operandi" we find here is to use a relaxed vendor to gain access to your infrastructure (do you remember Target?). It seems to me that paying with cash will become the way payment in America.

Re: Once again..
Note that Jimmy John's response is that it now has installed encrypted POS terminals in the stores.

Listing of stores is a good response tactic
As much as it saddens me to see another POS compromise victim, the way Jimmy Johns is responding to the compromise is commendable.  To provide a list of affected stores demonstrates a willingness to engage their customers even in the worst of situations. 
Of course, one would have to trust the provided list is accurate.

Once again..
Once again POS system exposed, security in retailer world is an optional and recent cases demonstrate it. It's time to completely change the approach to security to avoid a dramatic domino effect.

Such incidents expose users to financial losses, but also to identity theft risk and the worrying aspect is that in the majority of cases the data breached go undetected for months.
