Ten laptop computers were stolen from a team of securities regulators
conducting an investigation last February, but the computers contained
scant amounts of personal information, according to the National
Association of Securities Dealers.
There is irony in this story. The regulators were conducting what's known
as a "cause" exam, an investigation into possible misconduct by two member
firms. The only consumers whose identities were put at risk by the theft
were the subjects of the investigation, according to the NASD.
The incident underscores the jittery environment surrounding laptop
computers and private information in light of several high-profile
hardware thefts in recent months.
