Mike Le Couteur reports:

Ottawa police and the federal Office of the Privacy Commissioner are investigating a significant data breach in the federal government after a device was stolen from Public Services and Procurement Canada.

All 227 employees affected are at Infrastructure Canada, but they weren’t notified until more than two weeks after the breach.

The device in question was stolen on Aug. 20, but affected but employees were only informed on Sept. 7.
