We received a letter from the state yesterday, informing us that (at least) the
personal data on our youngest child had been comprimised (my bet is that that of
our whole family likely has been too).My problem is not only with
those who stole the information, but the state (and/or one of their agents) who
left the vault door open; (or unprotected), so to speak, making the theft
possible.If you left money at a bank, and they didnt put it in a
vault (or invest it safely), and it was stolen, would you only blame the
thief?Giving victims one year free on Experians program to monitor
credit is, IMO, insufficient. Who was/were the apparently negligent person/s who
allowed this to happen?
I'm wondering why the data base wasn't incrypted.
