Wednesday, January 30, 2008

An external computer hard drive  was stolen from the Office of Student Affairs  at Georgetown University  on January 3, 2008.  The hard drive contained sensitive personal information belonging to current and former students, faculty and staff. Had GadgetTrak USB been installed on this drive, when it was connected and accessed on a new computer it would have sent information regarding its location and  who had it. The drive was also NOT encrypted, all drives containing sensitive information such as this should be encrypted without question.
