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.
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.
