City of Dallas calls IT protocols ‘inadequate’ in 131-page report on police data loss

Ryan Osborne reports:

Dallas’ city information technology department sent a 131-page report to city council on Thursday, detailing the massive data loss involving police records earlier this year and attributing the issue to “inadequate” protocols among IT staff.

The report confirmed that 22 terabytes of data, involving more than 8 million records, were deleted in the loss, which happened in March.

About 14 terabytes were recovered, but the rest was permanently lost.
