Another day another UK agency announces the loss of a significant amount of sensitive data. The governmental agency called Insolvency Service has confirmed that four laptops were stolen from its Manchester office on August 27th.

One of the four laptops stolen contained confidential information on 486 directors and employees of firms that have gone bankrupt in the UK.

Among the information on the laptop were names, addresses, birth dates, and National insurance numbers. Lorna Dennis, spokeswoman of the agency said, “Today the Insolvency Service has written to the companies who have been affected by the theft of the laptop.”
