Time Warner Reports Security Breach of Employee Data

Not to be outdone by the other recent high profile cases, media giant Time Warner Inc., reported Monday that data on 600,000 former and current employees has been lost.

This time, the data which was stored on computer back-up tapes, wasn't hacked in cyberspace by some computer wizard rather it was literally lost in transit to an outside data storage company.

It's an all too familiar story- if personal data isn't being stolen, it is being flat out lost. It seems that we are on the verge of an epidemic, which is probably why Reuters reports that the Secret Service is investigating the latest incident.

You can bet that there will be more stories coming down from Capitol Hill this week about the need for Congress to act quickly to protect personal data.
