Everybody EXPECTS privacy but then again everybody EXPECTS operating systems to work, ATM's to not be bugged, etc.
Many breaches are 'social engineering' oriented, many are highly technical.
Breaches rarely result in publication of files, just use of credit card data, misuse of which is often covered by some sort of insurance agreement.
