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.
