Missing Woodbury Financial USB contained client data

Woodbury Financial Services, an affiliate of The Hartford, is a broker-dealer using independent registered agents. On or about March 16, one of the agents gave WFS an unencrypted USB drive containing client data. The USB was subsequently found to be missing, and a search of the premises was unsuccessful.

Woodbury Financial notified the New Hampshire Attorney General’s Office on April 9 and also notified those affected that their names, addresses, dates of birth, Social Security numbers, and in some cases, account numbers, were on the missing drive.
