UK's top cop tells banks not to refund cyber-crime victims,

I strongly disagree
UK's top cop tells banks not to refund cyber-crime victims, even as online defenses declared useless
Banks shouldn't compensate customers who are victims of cyber-crime because it “rewards” them for sloppy internet security, Britain’s highest-ranking police officer has said.
Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe said banks should refuse to reimburse people who fail to update anti-virus software and tighten their passwords.

His remarks come days after internet security firm Webroot warned traditional computer defenses are “useless” in the face of modern cyber-attacks.

Hogan-Howe compared refunding bank customers who are victims of cyber-crime to rewarding “bad behavior.”
