Stolen Esai Inc. laptop had unencrypted employee data

FCI USA wasn’t the only firm notifying the New Hampshire Attorney General of a stolen laptop this week.

By letter (pdf) dated November 16, attorneys for Eisai Inc. informed the state that a laptop was stolen from a Human Resources Department employee’s car in New Jersey on October 21. At least one file on the laptop contained unencrypted names, addresses and Social Security numbers of some current and former employees and applicants. The total number of individuals affected was not indicated, but 27 residents of New Hampshire were among those being notified.
