Breach at L.A. waterpower department affects 8300
LOS ANGELES (2/20/08)--About 8,300 Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (DWP) employees could be susceptible to identity theft after a computer containing their personal information was stolen from an outside vendor last week in Fullerton. H. David Nahai, DWP general manager, sent a letter about the theft and potential data breach to employees last week. The theft took place at Systematic Automation--the vendor that DWP had contracted with to print retirement booklets for employees (Los Angeles Daily News Feb. 16). The stolen data included names, Social Security numbers, birth dates, identification numbers, salaries, work locations, health benefits and insurance plan coverage, the newspaper said. Because the data is encrypted, the thieves may not be able to get at it, Nahai added. The department is taking steps to protect the employees’ data, including subscribing to a credit monitoring service. It also notified Water and Power Community Credit Union, which serves DWP employees, the newspaper said.
