Panera symptomatic
Thank you Curtis, for posting this report. 

In itself, the breach, the compromised data, and the response may seem like small potatoes compared to the mega breaches of the past few years.  However, this event is symptomatic of a problem well beyond the scale of any such incident.  There are a number of pertinent issues to consider; but for the moment, think about this: a restaurant chain has taken on the data security responsibilities which a few decades ago would only be expected of gevernments, financial institutions or defense contractors. 

In the case of Panera Bread, it is evident that they had not acknowledged the full extent of such responsibilities - and yet, what they had done to secure their data may well have been up to or beyond that of most entities of similar scale.  "May well have" because we are only likely to be able to make such assessments for those entities which have been breached - and it becomes known that a breach has occurred.  The case of Panera being "the tip of the iceberg" is almost certainly an understatement.
