Ok, the lesson to learn here . .

. . is that it is time to stop trusting small startups with your private data.

Yeah, I know, that is going to put a crimp on startups that propose money. In the meantime, we need a certification that proves that the startup knows what security is and knows how to manage cloud accounts.

I know, I'm dreaming. Just don't trust financial startups that don't have a banking charter.
