Brighton laptop stolen while IT engineer golfed

Anger is seething among several employees of the city of Brighton (Colorado) whose bank account numbers, social security numbers and addresses may have been compromised by the city’s lead IT engineer.

Jeromy King was playing in a charity golf tournament Monday at the Ranch County Club in Westminster when someone apparently took a laptop computer from his pickup.

The laptop contained the sensitive payroll information of city employees.


Johnson did say the information on the computer was encrypted.


The companion news video indicates that almost 350 employees had data on the laptop.
