NASA Employees Personal Information Has Been Compromised

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is warning employees that their personal details might have been compromised after a laptop was stolen from a staffer’s locked car.

The stolen device contains records of personally identifiable information for numerous employees, contractors and “others.”

The laptop is password protected, but because there’s no disk encryption system set in place, the chances for the information stored on it to be misused are fairly high.

“The Administrator is extremely concerned about this incident and has directed that all IT security issues be given the highest priority. NASA is taking immediate steps to prevent future occurrences of PII data loss,” reads the notice sent by Richard J. Keegan Jr., associate deputy administrator, to employees.
