A lonely entry sits in a security database about the employee data theft at American Express in Phoenix. Phoenix houses most of the technology workers, contractors and is home to the primary data center. It's ripe for the picking, especially if you are Timothy Curley, a former database administrator with a penchant for crystal methamphetamine.
It is old news and considered years ago in web time. American Express is finally getting around to ponying up the breach notification letters, which no doubt are filled with placating words with a card replacement and free credit monitoring for a couple of years. Nice consolation prize, right?
The question remains: Do you still trust American Express? I can't. I have seen way too much.
