The British Council has announced that it has lost a CD containing the personal and financial details on 2000 of its employees. Among the data on the disk are names, national insurance numbers, salary and bank information of the UK staff.

The missing disk is said to be encrypted and secured to prevent anyone finding the CD from finding what is stored on the disk.

The disk was reportedly lost while being transferred from the payroll data supplier for the organization to its human resources department. The disk is still being looked for and officials say that the system for transferring data is now under review.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
