WI: DOC Electric employees’ personal data auctioned off

The Wisconsin Office of Privacy Protection has posted notice of a breach that occurred on January 15, 2009 when DOC Electric assets were auctioned off by M&I Bank and a local auction house. Apparently the computers and file cabinets contained personal information on DOC Electric employees who were employed from the start of the business until the business closed in the summer of 2008. Personal information on the computer and in the files included the former employees’ names, addresses, Social Security numbers, employment records, and financial accounts.

A web site for DOC Electric shows that it is/was a licensed electrical contractor. The business was founded in in 1987.
