This strikes me as odd and I have a couple of questions for the group.
1. If your data is lost and there is a clear "at fault" party as seems to be
the case here (the data was unencrypted) they isn't the "at fault party
supposed to provide ID theft protection? Is that a law or just something
done to reduce damages should they ever be sued over release of personally
identifiable information without informed consent?
2. If it is welfare rolls, then these people can't afford to do this on
their own, so again why isn't the state setting this up for them?
