This one from right here in the Buckeye state:
A 22-year-old intern was given the responsibility of safeguarding the personal information of thousands of state employees, a security procedure that ended up backfiring.
The names and Social Security numbers of all 64,000 Ohio state employees were stolen last weekend from a state agency intern who left a backup data storage device in his car, Gov. Ted Strickland said.
An additional review of data revealed that the storage device also held information on 53,797 participants enrolled in the state’s pharmacy benefits management program, as well as names and Social Security numbers of about 75,532 dependents, the governor’s office confirmed Saturday. Strickland has asked Ohio Inspector General Tom Charles to investigate.
There is a major difference in this one is that the state’s top politician is taking notice and making changes:
Either way, Strickland said the security procedure failed, and he issued an executive order to change the practices for handling state data.
See that George Bush? Instead of playing a blame game, like you did on all the breaches of U.S. data, Ted Strickland is pissed off and working to correct the situation to make sure private information is more secure. That is a big difference between a do nothing President and an active governor.
