That a corporation worth multiple billions of dollars can't keep our information secure despite one individual.

That is the message here.

IMHO, the "punishment" trajectory should aim toward Capital One. After all they are the ones who ultimately fucked up.

Frankly; Oh dear my ex-employee, or someone "trusted" who was pissed off because I/We didn't think I/We did anything to piss them off is not an admissible excuse.

Why anyone should weep for a multi-billion dollar company while crowing "throw the bitch in jail" for exposing their lacking security practices is beyond me.

Who is the criminal. A large mega-corp who could not keep their shit straight or an individual who proved their security perfectly invalid, and then told us!

Cry me a river...
