OH: Laptop with financial information stolen from the home of state Auditor’s Office employee

Reginald Fields reports:

A state-owned laptop containing some financial audits of public offices in northwest Ohio was stolen this week during a burglary at a house in Findlay.

It was the home of a regional auditor for the state Auditor’s Office.

The employee, whose identity has not been released, was suspended for 15 days because a password that opens access to the financial records was attached to the computer, a violation of the office policy.

The Auditor’s Office said the public offices whose information was contained on the computer are being notified, according to a news release from Auditor Dave Yost’s office.

The release said there was very little personal information included in the files on the laptop.

I wonder what they consider “very little personal information.”
