Before my company was bought out, we used a company called administaff to handle payroll and benefits. Yesterday, I received a letter stating that a laptop had "gone missing" (all by itself the clever thing!) that had all my info (ssn, birthdate, address, bank and routing no, mother's maiden name...) this info was not encrypted, even though it is supposed to be, nor should it ever have been on a laptop. Administaff is a big company that is publicly traded, not some little mom and pop shop. They offered one year credit monitering with protection up to $2,500 with a $250 deductible. Oh, and this offer not valid for citizens of New York. This happened to most, if not all of my company. Sigh. I'm gonna have to find a lawyer.
