[Dataloss] Hattiesburg MS City Hall Computer Disk Drives stolen

Hattiesburg police search for leads in a June break-in at City Hall of
computers and 18 hard drives containing private data on thousands of
employees and contractors, registered voters, and people who had paid water
system bills via direct deposit, including names addresses, social security
#s, bank account numbers..
None of the people, whose private data was on the stolen equipment, have
had their data used fraudulently, yet.
A surveillance video saw 2 men doing the break in, and the FBI is helping
to enhance that video. Apparently the city saved money by no monitoring of
surveillance video until discovery of $ 150,000.00 worth of property been
stolen, not counting the value of the personal data.
City Hall is now having a specialist come in to review security arrangements.
