Well yes, there are few businesses that have good security and information policies and who I trust.

However, my point is that banks are in the business of keeping my money - that's what I pay them for. They're not a news outlet or someone who I trust to give me advice for the best use of other people's systems. And, when compromises do happen, we don't hear about it unless there was specific data loss found.

So basically they should never send me this type of email.
