SG: Potential data breach after travel agency employee loses hard disk

David Sun reports:

The authorities are investigating a potential data breach after a travel agency employee lost a hard disk containing personal details of clients.

The employee of Insight Vacations had taken the disk out of the office without authorisation and lost it in a taxi on the way home.

The disk, which has not been recovered, contains the names, mailing addresses and NRIC details of more than 200 clients, as well as the names, mailing addresses and mobile numbers of more than 5,000 people on the agency’s mailing lists.
