Data Loss: 109,000 Pension Details

In an unusual and rare event for the UK data has been lost!

A laptop has been stolen, containing details  of 109,000 members of six different pension schemes. The data was stolen from NorthgateArinso “Deliver HR Excellence”  in Marlow, Buckinghamshire, last month, on 23rd March 2009.

The event has just come to light and the laptop was not, of course, encrypted. And all the usual details were lost in the theft of the laptop; names, addresses, dates of birth, NI numbers, salary details…etc, etc.

Encryption….just use TrueCrypt its free and easy.
