Gracias NC Department of Revenue…



Escuché en las noticias locales anoche que el de Carolina del Norte Departamento de Hacienda ha perdido un ordenador portátil que tenía información sobre el estado ~ 30.000 contribuyentes en él. Números / etc de la Seguridad Social… El informe que vi que el Estado ha creado una línea directa para “teach citizens about el robo de identidad” y han enviado cartas a los afectados. Gracias… lose a laptop with 30,000 and then teach US about el robo de identidad. How about teaching employees with sensitive information about encryption? ……. so I looked into it a bit further this morning.


De acuerdo con este artículo the laptop was stolen from a car in the Raleigh area in DECEMBER. North Carolina has avictims toolkit” en esta dirección 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).

También, 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. Seamos realistas, 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. Estos días, 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.

Desde 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.

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