DATA LOSS—CANADADecember 15, 2011
An RCMP investigation has revealed that an Insurance Corporation of British Columbia (ICBC) employee inappropriately accessed the information of 65 people--13 of whom have had their property damaged by shootings or arson, reports The Vancouver Sun. The employee has been fired and is under continuing investigation, and the police are pursuing "significant investigative avenues to determine if others could be at risk," said a police spokeswoman. All 13 victims identified are affiliated with the Justice Institute of British Columbia, and police are still looking for a motive. ICBC CEO Jon Schubert expressed his concern for the victims, adding that the company is taking preventative measures.
