Another Stolen Government Laptop

In the latest string of stolen laptops, an Army laptop containing names, social security numbers, and payroll information was stolen from a privately owned car at Ft. Monroe, Va., according to a statement by the public affairs office for the U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command.

The personal information for as many as 16,000 civilian employees at the command, located at Ft. Monroe, could be affected. The laptop was password protected and Army officials say no bank account or routing numbers were stored on the laptop. The command did not report on whether the laptop was encrypted or not. The Army plans to notify by letter the civilian employees whose personal information was on the laptop, the station reports.
