data security firm mc afee loses Human resource information

Thousands of McAfee employees, both American and Canadian are at risk this week as unencrypted data about them was lost by an external auditor.

The announcement was made yesterday, although the actual loss occurred December 15th when a Deloitte & Touche employee left an unencrypted backup CD in an airline seat pocket. The CD held personal information about 6,000 former McAfee employees as well as all of the current staff in the US and Canadian regions.

Information that may have been on the disc includes names, Social Security numbers and details on any McAfee stock the individual may have. Credit reporting services have been arranged for those affected, and no reports of the information being used have been received
