Sensitive Bank Info Bought on eBay
The drive came from the archiving firm Graphic Data, which is supposed to protect such data from getting into the wrong hands. Graphic Data's services are used by banks like RBS and American Express to store and, ultimately, dispose of confidential information.
How exactly this drive escaped without being cleaned remains to be seen, but we're guessing the company is scrambling to find out. Last year, after a similar leak due to a lost laptop, Nationwide Building Society was fined nearly two million dollars for not protecting customer information. Expect something similar here.
