ChoicePoint Gets Company

You can’t make this stuff up. No sooner did ChoicePoint blaze the trail in purloined data than Bank of America felt the need to join the club!

Bank of America Corp. has lost computer data tapes containing personal information on 1.2 million federal employees, including some members of the U.S. Senate.

The lost data includes Social Security numbers and account information that could make customers of a federal government charge card program vulnerable to identity theft.

Bank of America says they’re taking responsibility. That means they’re admitting what they did. Taking responsibility is a far cry from that and, so far, I see no sign that’s happening.
