Stolen Laptop With Private Information

Once again laptops with people’s personal information has been stolen. This time from a business in Ohio. One of the laptops contained personal data of more than 72,000 medicaid recipients.

This seems to be a growing problem lately. People stealing electronics that is holding information on sometimes millions of consumers. And people do need to be worried because we have to show or give our information to many businesses.

You go to blockbuster to sign up for a membership card and they want your social security number. You give your debit or credit card to store clerks to check and scan and you don’t know what they are doing with it. We can be as careful as possible but the end result is that our information leaves our hands many times a day.
