Tak NC Department of Revenue…



Jeg hørte om de lokale nyheder i går aftes, at North Carolina Department of Revenue har mistet en bærbar computer, der havde ~ 30.000 stat skatteydere oplysninger om den. CPR-numre / etc… Rapporten jeg så, at staten har opsætte en hotline til “teach citizens about identitetstyveri” og har sendt breve til de berørte. Tak… mister en bærbar computer med 30,000 and then teach US about identitetstyveri. Hvad med undervisning medarbejdere med følsomme oplysninger om kryptering? ……. så jeg kiggede ind i det lidt længere i morges.


Ifølge denne artikel the laptop was stolen from a car in the Raleigh area in DECEMBER. North Carolina has avictims toolkit” på this address which is geared towards giving people the tools to request a freeze on their credit, notifying the three major credit bureaus, etc.. (The report was from mid-January).

Også, people are encouraged to act quickly if they are notified that their information has been compromised.

It’s amazing to me that such large volumes of sensitive data are carried around and assumably NOT kept in an encrypted loop-back or some other protected store. Lad os se det i øjnene, there ARE many tools for making a file relatively unreadable without a good passphrase. There is no indication in the reporting that I’ve seen that any steps were taken to encrypt the data for just such a possibility.

This get’s me back to something I’ve said many times to folks that say they won’t make a purchase online because they’re concerned about identity theft. Disse dage, we are at the mercy of EVERY company that we do business with (including the state/federal and local governments). There is risk EVERY time you give someone your social security number or let the credit card swipe because more often than not it goes into a database somewhere. If the companies that are keeping the data have lax security or make poor choices, then you’re out of luck.

Fra Charlotte observer’s report….

The employee’s car was locked, and she had followed department policies about securing the computer, Brooks told the Observer. The computer contained security features, but Brooks said officials are examining additional software safeguards.

Så… I will assume they at least had a login password as part of their policyI’m afraid that may have been all.
