Jeff: My research into corporate governance in recent months has not included Bank One. The previous Bank One CEO was not particularly responsive to the public. My knowledge about Mr. Dimon's accomplishments remains very limited, so I will eat some crow and concede I overdid the rhetorical attacks against Mr. Dimon.

I still am appalled at the lack of timely disclosure by Bank One to its customers (including FORMER customers who no longer had business relationships with Bank One) to warn or assist them regarding the unauthorized criminal release of personally-identifiable credit and banking data.

What may be more frightening than Bank One's very inadequate response to protect their customers/former customers, is that this kind of unauthorized disclosure and criminal activity could potentially occur with other banks. The laws apparently do not require or even encourage banks to notify the victims of such unauthorized disclosure.
