The bigger issue here is that this isn't the first time sensitive data has
gone missing from the TSA. Earlier this year, the TSA lost a computer with bank
and payroll data for nearly 100,000 employees. (By the way, that acronym stands
for "Transportation Safety Administration." I'd question the "S"
and the "A" if they continue to have laptops lifted from them on a
semi-regular basis. Aren't these the people who're supposed to keep bad guys
from bringing bad things onto airplanes?)
time, two laptops with detailed personal information about commercial drivers
licensed to transport hazardous materials are gone. The laptops belonged to
a contractor called Integrated Biometric Technology that works for the TSA.
Since they were reported missing, TSA has instructed the contractor to encrypt
its hard drives. So far, there have been no reports of data misuse.
