[Dataloss] "Nokia staff jacked by Ernst & Young laptop loss"

When Ernst & Young loses a laptop, it doesn't mess around. The
Register has learned that the same missing system with personal
information on Sun Microsystems, Cisco, IBM and BP workers also
contained data on Nokia's US staff.
A Nokia source notified us that he received a letter from Ernst & Young
detailing the accounting firm's loss of his personal information. An
Ernst & Young spokesman then confirmed that the laptop was "the same"
machine with thousands of Sun, Cisco, IBM and BP staff data, including
their ages, social security numbers, tax identification numbers and
addresses. Ernst & Young continues to maintain that the laptop poses
little risk as it was password protected.
Some rather prominent security folk, however, dispute Ernst & Young's
contention. This letter comes from a top security expert at a very, very
large technology company. We've agreed to protect his identity.
