I don’t know if Panera Bread was SOX/PCI compliant, but I doubt it really matters. Like many other security professionals, I don’t see being compliant as a magical shield against attacks. But I also didn’t appreciate all the mocking that took place once Panera was breached. It’s true that being compliant doesn’t guarantee you will never be breached but did anyone ever claim that it does?.
