[Dataloss] Laptop theft puts residents at risk

RALEIGH - A laptop computer containing files on 30,000 taxpayers was
stolen from the car of an N.C. Department of Revenue employee last
month, and state officials are cautioning everyone on the list to keep
an eye on their finances for potential fraud.
The Revenue Department this week dispatched letters to all 30,000
people, apparently the first such episode since the enactment of an
N.C. law last fall requiring government agencies to notify consumers
when their data are lost or stolen.
Police have not recovered the computer, but the Jan. 10 letter from
Secretary of Revenue Norris Tolson said state officials are not aware
of anyone gaining access to the data.
