July 27, 2006 – ComputerWorld
U.S. Navy – Two laptops used by U.S. Navy recruiters have been missing since June and contained personal data on 31,000 recruiters and prospective recruits. About 4,000 Social Security numbers were included in the data on the laptops. Though the Navy says that the data was “password protected on multiple levels” this is not the same thing as data encryption. Passwords can usually be defeated without much effort, good encryption is relatively unbreakable.


July 25, 2006 – Star-Telegram
Deloitte & Touche LLP - A laptop was stolen from a payroll auditor's car containing, names, home addresses, phone numbers, Social Security numbers and how much the people were paid for about 12,000 current and former Armstrong World Industries Inc. employees. Armstrong employs about 2,000 people in Lancaster County, PA and makes flooring, ceilings and cabinets. No indication that the data was encrypted.


July 24, 2006 – MSNBC
State of New York - Workers Compensation Board – A computer on loan to a contractor is missing and contains the names, addresses and Social Security numbers of as many as 540,000 injured workers. It was on loan to Chicago-based CS Stars, an independent insurance brokerage. According to the report CS Stars had been using the computer to transport data from the State of NY's office to the companies office. Apparently the laptop was not using data encryption.


July 19, 2006 – JournalStar.com – Lincoln, NE
Nelnet Inc – Lincoln, NE Nelnet Inc. says a computer data tape containing the personal information of as many as 188,000 customers is missing. Nelnet Inc. is a student loan provider and the tapes contained personal data from on customers that were previously serviced by the College Access Network between Nov. 1, 2002 and May 31, 2006. The tape was being shipped by the United Parcel Service and cannot be located. No indication that data encryption was being utilized.


July 19, 2006 – Wellington Daily News
U.S. Department of Agriculture - Police are investigating the theft of a computer Saturday they say contained sensitive information about hundreds of United States Department of Agriculture employees. The computer, investigators say, contained names, addresses, and social security numbers of employees and state contractors involved in federal meat grading programs. The laptop computer was reported missing from a parked vehicle in Wellington, KS. Investigators report that the owner of the vehicle had apparently hit the trunk latch button before exiting the vehicle leaving the trunk open. The data was apparently not encrypted but has since been recovered. Officials say the names, addresses, and social security numbers of the employees and state contractors may have been accessed.


July 13, 2006 – Des Moines Register
University of Iowa – A laptop with Social Security numbers and some contact information for 280 current and former MBA students was stolen from a faculty member’s business office.


July 5, 2006 – Bloomberg.com
Bisys Group Inc. - Backup tapes including the social security numbers of 61,000 individuals, were being moved June 8 between the Roseland, New Jersey-based Bisys RK business unit to another facility when the truck was stolen. The tapes can only be read with ``sophisticated hardware and proprietary software,'' said a Bisys spokesperson..That is not the same as data encryption. Tapes can be sold to someone with access to the hardware and software.
