OSU Virus, UNC Improvements, CT AG Calls out Teachers Board
DATA LOSS—U.S.July 15, 2010
While the University of North Carolina institutes new policies to beef up data security after a state audit showed system vulnerabilities, officials at Oregon State University are notifying 34,000 current and former employees that their personal information was recently exposed by a computer virus, KVAL reports. The university says there is "no evidence that any data was extracted," but is notifying those impacted out of an abundance of caution. Meanwhile, Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal wants the state Teachers' Retirement Board to provide identity theft protection services for 58,000 members whose information was contained on a lost flash drive.
