Umask is already set system-wide in /etc/profile:

# Default to removing the write permission for group and other
#  (files normally created with mode 777 become 755; files created with
#  mode 666 become 644)
umask 022

And user-defined in ~/.bashrc

# /etc/profile sets 022, removing write perms to group + others.
# Set a more restrictive umask: i.e. no exec perms for others:
# umask 027
# Paranoid: neither group nor others have any perms:
# umask 077

Check under /etc/defaults/etc.

YMMV, but 'bash -l' should source your profile settings, both
system-wide and user defined.
