Connecticut AG Wants Answers About Breach
DATA LOSS—U.S.June 15, 2011
Connecticut Attorney General George Jepsen has written a letter to Citigroup's CEO and general counsel asking for more information about its recent data breach. Bloomberg reports that Jepsen wants details such as "the number and characteristics of impacted accounts, the cause of the breach, the steps taken to notify and protect the affected individuals" and what the company is doing to prevent future breaches. Jepsen gave a June 22 deadline for Citigroup to respond. A company spokesman has said, "None of the data breached was sufficient to perpetrate fraud" and outlined the steps it has taken.
