The Non-Encrypted Hall of Shame


In today's world not protecting other people's personal information that has been entrusted to you is a shameful act. It should be considered as bad as stealing. When you don't take prudent steps to guard their personal information you are negligent. Too bad there isn't a law called “negligent theft”, until such time we give you “The Non-Encrypted Hall of Shame”. If your company loses other people's information on a laptop, backup tape, thumb drive, or other portable device, or any media that has left your company's properly secured physical control, and that data is non-encrypted your are likely to end up here. If your device was lost and the data was properly encrypted you will not be listed here. GovExec.com did a nice article this month on data protection within the federal government, how FISMA relates to all this, and the massive finger pointing that is just getting started. Proper encryption is better than Fort Knox at protecting data. (NIST.org)

Connecticut Department of Revenue Services (DRS) – A laptop computer containing information on approximately 106,000 taxpayers was stolen that contained taxpayer names and Social Security Numbers. The data apparently was not encrypted. To add insult to injury the state had the following to say “The stolen laptop was password-protected. It is highly unlikely that someone could access the data without specialized knowledge.” Yea, like the 12 year kid down the street with 10 minutes available for a Google search. It isn't difficult and the only “specialized knowledge” required is the ability to follow step-by-step instructions on the internet. Encrypt your data, passwords are meaningless.

Every licensed peace officer, jailer and telecommunicator in Texas was in the database on that computer. The information included Social Security numbers, birth dates, drivers license information, home address, home telephone number and other personal information. Officials have not said the information was encrypted so there is a strong likelihood that it was not. This information in the wrong hands could create some pretty scary situations.

University of New Mexico – A laptop containing the names, e-mail and home addresses, UNM ID numbers and net pay for a pay period for staff, faculty and a few graduate students was stolen from a consultant working on UNM’s human resource and payroll systems. The University ID numbers must be used in conjunction with a password so those won't help anyone very much. But this is personally identifiable information (PII) that should have been protected. No mention of data encryption.

Caterpillar Inc. - A laptop computer containing personal data on employees was stolen from a benefits consultant who does work for the company.

April 25, 2007 - BaltimoreSun.com
Baltimore County Health Department - A laptop computer containing Social Security numbers, dates of birth, addresses, telephone numbers and emergency contact information of over 6,000 patients was stolen from a Baltimore County Health Department building. But in what must be on page one of the public relations handbook a letter sent to those affected had the following comment "but the computer was protected by a password, lowering the risk of identity theft or other misuses". As we've often stated that statement probably is not true. If the thief wants data off the laptop the password will barely slow them down. You need to encrypt the data, and encrypt it correctly.


April 25, 2007 - SecuritySearch.com
Neiman Marcus Group Inc. - Sensitive information on up to 160,000 current and former Neiman Marcus employees was contained on a laptop stolen from one of its consultants.

Therefore, the company is proceeding as if was not."


April 18, 2007 CNET News.com
Internal Revenue Service (IRS) – At least 490 IRS computers (mostly laptops) turned up missing between January 2, 2003 and June 13, 2006. Many of these computers had sensitive taxpayer information on them. “It is quite likely that sensitive data for a "significant number" of taxpayers has become available for potential identity theft”. An audit report recommended that the agency “embrace providing proper instructions on correct encrypting procedures for sensitive information, annual validation of backups, and physical checks of offsite record-storage facilities.” “investigators determined that about 126 of the incidents "contained sufficient details to show that personal information for at least 2,359 individuals was involved.” “Of 100 computers tested by the inspectors, 44 contained unencrypted "sensitive" data, including information about taxpayers and IRS personnel. Backup data stored on portable media at four offsite locations visited by the inspectors were also unencrypted and insufficiently protected from physical intrusion.”


April 17, 2007 - LaTimes.com
Los Angeles County Department of Social Services' Refugee Employment Program - "A county laptop computer that contained individuals' Social Security numbers was stolen last month, according to a county report. The password-protected computer assigned to a county auditor-controller employee held the names and Social Security numbers of 28 people enrolled in the Department of Social Services' Refugee Employment Program." Of course this is hardly what a "refugee" new to our country needs to deal with. The fact that this information was not encrypted is negligence at best. The county says they are looking in to purchasing encryption software.


April 14, 2007 – Sun-Sentinel.com
ChildNet – In what is admittedly just the tip of the iceberg in a rather disturbing case of suspected fraud, kickbacks, theft, etc. a laptop computer with personal information on 12,000 people applying to be adoptive and foster parents was stolen from ClildNet. The laptop computer contained the Social Security numbers, credit information and fingerprints on 12,000 applicants to ChildNet's programs, most of them applying to be foster or adoptive parents. There is a lot more disturbing details in this story including “ChildNet employees might have stolen Christmas toys donated to foster children”.


April 13, 2007 – BankNet360.com
Bank of America - A laptop computer with the names, addresses, birthdates, and Social Security numbers of a “unspecified number of former and current employees” was stolen recently. “The computer was equipped with certain “information-protection features,” but they aren't saying what that might be. Bank of America has over 200,000 employees worldwide.


April 10, 2007 – SC Magazine
Affiliated Computer Services - “Disk with personal information of 2.9 million Georgia residents lost while in possession of breach-prone Affiliated Computer Services”. “Georgia health officials reported today that a vendor working with the Georgia Department of Community Health is missing a disk containing the names, birth dates and Social Security numbers of 2.9 million Georgia health services recipients.” “"I think the key here is that the data on the CD, presumably, was not encrypted”. This seems to have received very little news media play which seems odd. Nearly 3 million people were put at serious risk of identity theft. This is also not this companies first time being in the news for losing huge amounts of personal data. One involved over 1.4 million people. See link above.


April 9, 2007 – NBC5 Chicago
Chicago Public Schools - Two laptops were stolen that contained the Social Security numbers of 40,000 Chicago school teachers. The article quotes a school official as saying “One of the laptops has biometric fingerprint encryption”. Chances are the biometric fingerprint was for “authentication”, not encryption. In which case its not going to do much to protect the data. If it truly was part of a good encryption application that was properly implemented then the teachers have little or nothing to worry about from that laptop. Of course the other laptop was apparently wide-open.


March 31, 2007 WYFF Channel 4 South Carolina
The Blood Connection – A laptop that was missing for up to two years before being noticed had Social Security numbers, birth dates and names of blood donors on it. Two rather disturbing quotes in this article. The first from a Blood Connection manager “There are several layers of protection for that information – log-in, user access codes (are needed) to get into the system.”. Ok, probably meaningless authentication such as a login password. The second quote is from state Sen. David Thomas who is looking to pass legislation on data protection “Encryption devices can be overcome with the correct technology”. Excuse me Senator but properly implemented AES encryption might be cracked by a hacker given about 16 trillion years. You won't be running for reelection by that time so don't worry about it.


March 27, 2007 – DailyPress.com Hampton Roads, VA
Army Training and Doctrine Command – A laptop containing payroll information on 16,000 civilian employees was stolen from an employee's car. The laptop contained a database consisted of Social Security numbers, names and payroll information. The employee had permission to take the laptop home and it was protected with a Common Access Card (CAC). A CAC is used primarily for authentication and email encryption (public / private key), no mention is made that the data on the hard drive was encrypted.


March 25, 2007 - KOMO-TV Seattle, WA
Group Health Cooperative Health Care System - Two Group Health laptop computers containing the personal information of 31,000 people have been reported missing. The computers contain the names, addresses, social security numbers and Group Health ID numbers of local patients and employees. The laptops were "password protected" but there is no indication that the data was encrypted.


March 3, 2007 – FOX31.COM
Metropolitan State College of Denver - Nearly 1000 students names and social security numbers were on a laptop stolen earlier this week. The computer contained roster information of 988 students enrolled in the faculty member's classes from the beginning of the 1999 fall semester to the end of the 2002 fall semester. A college spokesperson said “This investigation may lead to disciplinary action”.
