April 10, 2009
Fujitsu Consulting this week is informing clients that it has lost an electronic storage device containing data from "many information technology projects," including the personal data of more than 3,000 individuals held by The Travelers Insurance Co.
According to a breach disclosure letter from Fujitsu Consulting (PDF), the storage device was lost in transit on July 28 by an overnight courier service that was carrying it between Fujitsu's offices in New York and Montreal.
Fujitsu Consulting did not name the other companies whose data resides on the device, nor did it say whether the names were Travelers employees or customers.
Reed Smith LLP, the consulting firm's legal counsel, did not say why it took eight months for the company to reveal the leak. The attorneys did say the firm has been "diligently" searching through the data for any personally identifiable information that might be on the device.
