The Corps of Engineers is investigating the recent loss of an external
hard drive that could pose identify theft problems for as many as 60,000
soldiers and Army civilians.
Maj. Mark Young, a Corps of Engineers spokesman in Washington, said the
security breach occurred in the command's Southwestern Division, which is
headquartered in Dallas, in early November.
"Right now the focus is on investigating [the incident], alerting people
who may be affected, and taking measures to make sure it doesn't happen
again," he said.
Information stored on the missing hard drive includes personal data, such
as names and Social Security numbers, on a number of current and former
soldiers and some civilian employees, according to information provided by
the Southwest Division.
