Finra fines Lincoln Financial broker-dealer $650,000 for failing to protect client data

Didn't we do this already?

FINRA fined Lincoln Financial last week for failing to secure client data. But 5 years ago, FINRA fined Lincoln Financial for failing to secure client data.

What the heck is going on? $600,000 in fines does not send home the message that confidential client information needs to be protected? So we fine them another $600,000?

Is is possible that Linclon believes that $100,000 a year in fines is cheaper than securiing its data centers?

Is is possible that FINRA needs to start fining the senior executives in order to drive home the point?
