The degree of irresponsibility and lack of concern for consumers that Chase has shown with this leak is unbelievable. Consumers enter into relationships with banks because they want access to certain services, and they assume, rightly so, that the company they're giving their business to will act appropriately to protect consumers' sensitive information. This is the least that a customer can expect when they decide to pay for a company's services. If Chase has failed this basic test, then every affected consumer should by all means terminate their relationship with that company.
In light of the recent hacking incident at Chase Bank, people may believe that leaving this bank would be a good idea, but it really won't solve anything. In all probability, Chase was targeted because they are the largest bank in the country, but chances are other banks are just as vulnerable, if not more so.
Additionally, Chase has probably learned a lot about weak spots in their security and will therefore be even more vigilant in keeping out hackers in the future.
Customers don't need to switch banks after a hack at Chase Bank. While hackers are good at what they do, banks are highly trained at what they do i.e. detecting hacks and fraud. Also, switching banks does not deter you from ever getting hacked again. So switching banks is more headache than it's worth.
It`s not a wise deed to change banks for the sake of escaping every possible risk, even hackers attack. Attacks happen all the time and no one is safe. Additionally banks safeguard their clients personal information and refund them if abused transactions happened. On the other hand switching bank cab be a long and painful process taking in mind the required documentation and notices for clients and counterparts.
