Privacy and Security Watch: Backup Tape Missing With Personal information On About 650,000 Customers

Richard Kuper
The Kuper Report

According to this article, "Personal information on about 650,000 customers of J.C. Penney and up to 100 other retailers could be compromised after a computer tape went missing." About 150,000 of those missing records contained social security numbers. GE Money, part of General Electric Capital Corp., is the credit card operations for Penney's and the other retailers. They apparently discovered the tape was missing last October. There is no explanation in the article why this is first coming to light now. The tape was being stored at a warehouse run by Iron Mountain Inc.
