KPCB notifies employees and partners of laptop theft

Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers is a venture capital firm located in Menlo, California.

Over the weekend of July 19-20, their building and office security were circumvented and several laptops were stolen. Two of the laptops were used by personnel in their finance department and contained employees’ and partners’ names, contact information, Social Security numbers and financial accounts information.

KPCB notified the New Hampshire Attorney General’s Office of the incident on August 13, and informed those affected that they could sign up for a year of credit monitoring protection with Experian ProtectMyID.

One New Hampshire resident was affected, but the total number affected was not reported.

There’s no explanation of how both building and office security were “circumvented” nor why the data were on laptops that were only password-protected.
