I just heard ANOTHER report on the news about personal data being released into the wild. In this case tens of thousands of records about Navy personnel was actually published on a web site for a while.

How stupid do you have to be to have these kinds of mistakes? I work very hard to secure the systems I work with, including all removable media. Why are these companies storing personal data on the laptops of employees who aren't smart enough to watch them? Why isn't encryption part of every company data set?
