It was a PR cost when laws were first passed requiring notification.  Now, 
security breach notices are so common that the media doesn't even bother 
reporting them anymore except for the most extreme cases.  Until we get laws 
requiring companies to pay non-trivial fines and/or restitution for each 
record compromised, it'll remain a non-event.
