Re: Less than 40,000 of its reported 230 million global customers were compromised in the incident
what made this approx 2% acquiring by the unknown malicious actors while the other 98% remained safe? That is a good question, what some percentages to start with. It maybe that there migh not have been enough times to download all the data, so people at the top of record set were the lucky ones. Just a guess.

Re: Fraud Activity
The advice to change cards is a good first step That is true, better change it periodically than wait for a breach I would say.

Re: Fraud Activity
When a breach is confirmed it should be mandated that the data custodian be responsible for providing fraud insurance/services to the individual. That may help, I prefer not to have the problem in the first place. I am fan of any insurance it comes back and hurt the public.

Re: "under fire for not disclosing the breach sooner"
don't see a problem with publically declaring a breach until you are confident you have all of the details in order. Makes sense, unless they have all the information better not to speculate otherwise more harm than help.

GDPR
Ticketmaster UK has notified tens of thousands of customers that they might be at risk for identity theft and credit card fraud due to a data breach, I wonder what is going to happen under the guidance of GDPR now, it will most likely fall under that regulation.

1.7% compromise. My question would be is this the full extent of the data lost or will more be disclosed in the future? To that end, what made this approx 2% acquiring by the unknown malicious actors while the other 98% remained safe?

Fraud Activity
When a breach is confirmed it should be mandated that the data custodian be responsible for providing fraud insurance/services to the individual. The advice to change cards is a good first step but it doesn't give me the warm and fuzzies that the rest of the >40K individuals are going to heed these actions early.

"under fire for not disclosing the breach sooner"
I think its negligent not to work with the >40K individuals to ensure that their finances aren't at further risk, but I don't see a problem with publically declaring a breach until you are confident you have all of the details in order.
