Stolen Monterey Institute of International Studies laptop contained students’ SSNs

Monterey Institute of International Studies, a graduate school at Middlebury College in California, has been notifying students whose unencrypted names and Social Security numbers were on a laptop stolen during a burglary at an employee’s home.

The letter, dated October 3,  offers no explanation as to why the data weren’t encrypted, but offers those affected free credit monitoring services as a result of the September 14th burglary.
