Bank of New York Mellon breach hits 4.5m customers

Bank of New York Mellon has lost unencrypted back-up computer tapes containing the confidential details of around 4.5 million customers.

Lost in Transit

Is anyone else a tiny bit suspicious about the recent 'Whoopes, we lost some customer data" annoucements?

It is a case of something not happening very often so it is big news? Or is this the financial services' version of 'it fell off the bank of the truck.'

The last time I left something on a train/bus/shopping mall 'in transit' it was mittens and I was five.

Too true, there's a rather larger gap between the mittens and this data. How on earth can customer specific records be transfered unencrypted.
